In February 2012, the Farnsworth Art Museum and The Strand Theatre in Rockland, Maine, inaugurated a new series of short creative films entitled Rockland Shorts: An International Short Film Series. The series, shown in The Strand, includes an hour of short films selected from an open call to filmmakers. As part of the screening, select filmmakers and media artist included in the series will join in a discussion at the Strand in person or via skype for a conversation with the audience.

The lineup for Life and/or Death is:

·         Opening film: Green Eye by Walter Ungerer (local)
·         The Event— UK
·         Acrobat— France
·         The Other Dave —USA 
·         Post Modem —USA
·         Marcel —Belgium
·         Grandma’s Not a Toaster —USA
·         A Series of Kinetic Sets —USA

Filmmakers are able to submit directly to The Farnsworth Art Museum. All entries will be no longer than 20 minutes and will be chosen solely on the quality of the material. Rockland Shorts will strive to show contemporary, questing, independent films that help define the digital generation without restriction of culture, format, formula or genre. 

Please be advised that some of the films may contain adult language and sexual content, and may not be suitable for young audiences

Tickets for Rockland Shorts will be sold at The Strand Theatre box office: Farnsworth members $6.50, nonmembers $8.50.

After the screening, please join us at 3 Crow Restaurant on Main Street starting at 9:30 p.m. to continue the conversation!

This series is being organized by the Farnsworth Art Museum’s Education Department and Program Director Sally Levi.
