Naples International Film Festival 2017
October 26 - October 29
Film and art lovers alike are anticipating this month’s Naples International Film Festival, which is now operated by Artis–Naples. The merger of the two arts organizations was announced in January. “There’s going to be a conscious effort to reflect who Artis–Naples is through the NIFF films that are chosen, so you can expect more art-related influences for our audience to enjoy,” says David Filner, vice president of artistic operations at Artis– Naples. The festival, slated for October 26-29, begins with a kick-off party and the opening film screening at Artis—Naples. Shannon Franklin, the festival’s former executive and artistic director, returned as a consultant, and the ninth annual event is expected to follow a similar schedule as previous years. It will include screenings of approximately 50 feature-length and short films, as well as documentaries that will be shown at Silverspot Cinema at Mercato during the festival weekend.
