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.”
