Bull's Eye: A Painter on the Watch
MAINE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL | July 15–24
So you're not a big fan of the seashore, or you'd rather not take a ferry to your destination but still want to attend a topnotch festival in a relaxed setting. If that's the case, the 14th annual Maine International Film Festival, which takes place in Waterville on the banks of the Kennebec River, might fit the bill. Among the attractions are a "rediscovery" program that includes restored prints of Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, Bernardo Bertolucci's The Conformist, and John Ford's The Quiet Man. From across the border, Quebecois cinema is honored with screenings of Sébastien Pilote's acclaimed debut feature, The Salesman; Bull's Eye: A Painter on the Watch, Bruno Boulianne's documentary about artist Marc Séguin; and Route 132, Louis Bélanger's gripping crime drama. And actress Karen Young will represent American indies with her new films, Steven Williford's The Green and Julie Reichert's Warrior Woman.
