Film Forward: Free Screening of "Winter's Bone" at The Loft Tonight

Posted By on Mon, Jun 6, 2011 at 4:15 PM

In last week's print edition, I talked with the Loft Cinema's Peggy Johnson about Film Forward, the Sundance Institute's film series that's running in Tucson this week. You can find a complete schedule here; there's some really cool stuff showing for free around town this week.

One of those movies is Winter's Bone, a terrific thriller that shows at 7 p.m. tonight at The Loft Cinema.

Here's Peggy's explanation of the series:


Film Forward is a program that the Sundance Institute has put together in conjunction with the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The concept is to connect contemporary filmmakers and international films with global audiences, and to create a multicultural, cross-cultural dialogue. It's a pretty lofty mission, which is why, I guess, they picked the Loft. We're really excited about it, because the quality of these films is so great. There are only seven cities in the United States hosting this moving film festival, so we're really honored to be part of it.
