A chance encounter on a New York subway led to the Binghamton Babylon Film Festival. Now in its second year, the weekend is capped off with the Rod Serling Film Festival. Art Mission Vice-president Andrea Gregori and WSKG Education Director Jackie Stapleton talk about the many entries in both competitions. http://wskg.org/audio/17babylon.mp3
WSKG Arts weekly tour through the minds of New York State’s best and brightest filmmakers continues with these two episodes of Late Fringe. The first episode looks at the political films of Akram Shibly. Akram was able to spend time in a Syrian refugee camp and the images and words he was able to capture are truly remarkable. These are showcased in “Waiting at the Door” and the interviews that Akram holds with the children of the camp are eye opening. We also showcase “Heal the World”, which again looks at war through the eyes of innocent children.
Join WSKG Arts as we celebrate the work of regional filmmakers with our brand new series, Late Fringe. Host Phil Westcott navigates us around the state as we view exciting and thought provoking films every Saturday night at midnight. Grab your favorite movie snack and sit down for three short features. The first film is “The Luna and the Tide”, directed by Ben Davis and the beachside visuals are both breathtaking and emotionally compelling. The second feature was a winner in last year’s Rod Serling Film Festival and is directed by The Anderson Brothers.
