The Salem Film Fest, not to be confused with the Salem (Oregon) Film Festival, is happening soon – March 4 – March 10 in Salem MA.

It’s exciting to have a relatively new (this is it's fourth year), all-documentary festival in New England, one with a carefully-chosen program of 30 films.
I’ve been meaning to talk about movie posters since this post at’s daily notebook naming the SWEETGRASS poster as one of the top 10 of 2010 (one of the few documentaries to make the list).

With lots of festivals happening now and in the near future, plenty of filmmakers are getting their promotional materials ready to go. It’s an exciting opportunity to create an interesting and good-looking poster or flier that stands alone as a visual - all the more exciting for being a finishing touch once the work of making the actual film is done.

Below are some of the posters we’ve been collecting from LEF-funded filmmakers: it’s not just to pep up the walls in the LEF office - it's a great reminder for us of the variety of work that the Moving Image Fund has helped support. - Nellie




I was excited to learn that the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival will be working with Rick Prelinger from the Prelinger Archives for this year’s Thematic Program – all things archival.
