The Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival from November 7 to 11 will include fun for even the littlest film fans.
As part of the Festival, children ages 3 to 10 are invited to Children’s Cinema Corner, a kid-friendly event on Saturday, November 10 from 1 to 3pm in the upstairs screening room at Movies at Midway on Coastal Highway.
Among the film-inspired activities will be screenings of short films based on children’s books from Scholastic Publishing, a reading corner, arts and crafts stations, face painting and more. The activities will be supervised by Rehoboth Beach Film Society and Kids Cottage of Rehoboth Beach employees.
The Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival in the resort town of Rehoboth Beach on Delaware’s Atlantic Ocean coast is an annual event that presents approximately 100 American and international, feature, documentary and short films.
This year it will feature one of the most talked-about documentaries of the year: “The Invisible War.” As ranks of women in the American military swell, so do incidents of rape. An estimated 30 percent of servicewomen and at least 1 percent of servicemen are sexually assaulted during their enlistment and not by the enemy, but at the hands of fellow soldiers. With stark clarity and escalating revelations, “The Invisible War” exposes a rape epidemic in the armed forces, the institutions that perpetuate it, as well as its profound personal and social consequences.
The film screenings all take place at Movies at Midway on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach.
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society sponsors monthly screenings, special events, and the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival. Information can be found on all Film Festival programs and films at the Society’s website: www.rehobothfilm.com, or by calling the Film Society office at 302-645-9095 ext. 1.
