Now in its 7th year, the Chelsea Film Festival brings an international selection of shorts, features, and documentaries to NYC. Running October 17 to the 20th at the AMC Loews 34th Street (312 west 34th street), the fest includes films from Australia, USA, UK, France, Turkey, India, Japan and South Africa.
The festival opens with the South African film Uncovered, from director Zuko Nodada in which a woman investigates the murder of her sister and how it’s tied to a corrupt mine. Other films include Chasing the Present, director Mark Waters’ documentary which follows James Sebastiano, a materially successful young man, as he engages in a perpetual battle against anxiety that takes him on a worldwide journey of self discovery from the streets of New York, to the stillness of the Ganges, and deep into the jungles of Peru. She is the Ocean is a documentary from Inna Blokhina about four women from around the world and how through surfing are tied to the ocean.
Virtual Reality is represented with a special block of VR programs in competition that go from outer space, to mountain ranges, to the music of Pink Floyd. Along with its films, the fest will also put on the Reel Magic Hour at the Manhattan Center (311 W 34th St.). Reel Magic Hour is a day long program that provides one hour panels designed for filmmakers to meet and network.
