Once again, the Telluride by the Sea Film Festival returns to Portsmouth at The Music Hall from Friday, September 14th to Sunday the 16th, 2012. Six remarkable films will screen over the three days of the festival beginning with the Friday night queuing on Chestnut Street at 5:30 with live entertainment to please the waiting crowd.
This year’s selections include: Hyde Park on Hudson, A Royal Affair, Rust and Bone, Midnight’s Children, Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel, and No. Films are from the United States, China, Sri Lanka & Canada, and France.
Throughout the weekend, Festival pass-holders only will screen three special Film Noir surprise selections. Long a supporter of this film genre, the Festival chooses three low budget, hard-boiled, gritty specials which will be introduced by Noir aficionado, Kent Stephens.
Festival passes and individual tickets can be purchased through The Music Hall box office or their website. Pass holders have access to the Film Noir screenings, Sunday brunch at The District, and a wrap up party at the Portsmouth Brewery on Sunday night. Ticket lines are long, so advance purchases are highly recommended.
The Music Hall is located just a 10 minute walk from the Martin Hill Inn so that our guests can easily enjoy the films, visit the restaurants and return home without worrying about finding parking or feeding the parking meters.
