Charleston Film Festival 

When: March 7-10 2013
A Savannah aristocrat-turned-hunter, a whale trainer who loses her legs, and the famous song “Hava Nagila” are just a few of the central players in this year’s Charleston Film Festival lineup. The festival, which is now in its fourth year, features some of the best local, national, and foreign films from the past year, many of which can only be seen in Charleston during the four days of the event. “It gives us a chance to try something that maybe wouldn’t play at the Terrace for a month-long stretch, but is a great movie and something people would like to see,” says co-organizer and director of the Park Circle Film Society Nicholai Burton. Burton handles the local film selections, which come from all over South Carolina as well as North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. CFF director and Terrace Theater owner Paul Brown wrangles the bigger features, which this year include the locally produced Savannah, the French film Rust and Bone, and the latest installment in the Up documentary series, 56 Up. They’ll also be showing the Academy Award-nominated documentary, animated, and live action shorts. With between six and eight showings a day, there’s enough to keep you busy all weekend.
