FilmColumbia 2022, Oct 21 – 30

The Crandell Theatre presents the Annual FilmColumbia film festival, from Friday, October 21 to Sunday, October 30. 

FilmColumbia, Columbia County’s premier annual cultural event, will screen the very best–and the latest–national and international films from October 21 – 30, 2022. Once the Crandell Theatre’s “little local festival that could,” FilmColumbia is now an acclaimed, nationally recognized film event.

In addition to screening festival favorites from acclaimed directors, this year FilmColumbia will once again feature special panels and events with filmmakers, a popular screenwriting workshop, and a children’s international film festival of shorts that is free to the community.

“There are so many marvelous aspects to this year’s festival,” says Laurence Kardish, the festival’s co-artistic and co-executive director with Peter Biskind. “The number of extraordinary films by women, the number of award winners, and the broad range of programs from the most intimate of dramas to the most spectacular of blockbusters make this a festival of festivals.”

With the gardening season just around the corner, Crandell Theatre presents the area premiere of GardenFit, a new 13-episode public television series highlighting different garden styles and techniques, while providing advice and solutions for gardeners’ aches and pains. 

Columbia County residents, creators, and co-hosts of GardenFit, Expert Gardener Madeline Hooper and Fitness Trainer Jeff Hughes will introduce two 30-minutes episodes and conduct a Q&A.

In GardenFit, co-hosts Hooper and Hughes visit more than a dozen stunning private gardens and specialty farms across America, learning about each unique environment and its knowledgeable owner. Every show starts with a tour of the property, highlighting the distinctive gardening style while discussing insights, tips and techniques before discussing the owner’s physical aches and pains. “We’re not teaching people how to garden, “ says co-host Hooper, “We’re starting a GardenFit movement that integrates gardening with fitness techniques to prevent aches and pains.” Read more and view trailer here.
