Willsboro The Champlain Valley Film Society (CVFS) announces five movies for its Spring 2012 schedule.
All movies will be shown at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and only $2 for those under 18. For the most up-to-date schedule, please visit the CVFS website at www.cvfilms.org.
“We are incredibly excited about the Spring lineup, which features The Artist, the Academy Award-winner for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director, as well as three other Oscar and Golden Globe winners,” CVFS president David Reuther said. “Plus, for the first time since the Film Society began in 2003 we will be showing a double feature: this year's Live-Action and Animated Academy-Award nominated short films.”
On March 17, the double feature will take place with winners and nominees in the best animated and live action short film categories at this year’s Academy Awards, with the animated shorts playing at 6:30 p.m. and the live-action shorts showing at 8:30 p.m.
“These 10 short films are the cream of the crop from around the world,” Reuther said. “Last year, we showed the five Oscar-nominated live-action short films and they were a big hit with our audience. This year we're offering both.”
On March 31, “Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times,” will be shown. Press Republican editor Lois Clermont and Valley News editor Keith Lobdell will introduce this movie and answer questions afterward.
On April 14, the Society will show, “The Descendents,” which was the Golden Globe winner for best picture.
On April 28, they will show the Golden Globe and Academy-Award nominated film, “My Week with Marilyn,” followed by the Academy Award winner for best picture, “The Artist,” on May 12.
