The festival will open with a party and outdoor screening at Rockport Center for the Arts on Thursday November 6, then move to Rockport Cinema 4 on Friday and Saturday, November 7-8 for the remainder of film showings.

“We're excited to be working with Cinema 4 to bring another year of independent films to Rockport,”said Festival Managing Director John Aäsp.“With a larger screen, comfortable seating and all digital presentation, we expect the festival to take on a heightened cinematic experience.”

Cinema 4 owner Jeff Dinger is gearing up to host the festival this fall. “I'm delighted Cinema 4 will provide a venue for the Rockport Film Festival. With the digital projection we've added to our theaters, I think the presentation will please the filmmakers and this year's attendees.”
