2010 Nebraska Wesleyan University International Film Festival

Last night, I was bemoaning the fact that a friend had recently attended the Berlinale Film Festival, and that I didn’t know when I’d be able to attend my next film festival. I had completely missed that Nebraska Wesleyan University was having their 2010 International Film Festival this weekend, and the line-up is very solid:

  • The Best of Me (Spain, 2007) — 7pm, Thursday, February 25, 2010
  • Slingshot Hip Hop (Palestine, 2008) — 7pm, Friday, February 26, 2010
  • The Counterfeiters (Austria, 2007) — 2pm, Saturday, February 27, 2010
  • Departures (Japan, 2008) — 7pm, Saturday, February 27, 2010
  • Let the Right One In (Sweden, 2008) — 10pm, Saturday, February 27, 2010
  • Curse of the Golden Flower (China, 2006) — 2pm, Sunday, February 28, 2010
  • The Class (France, 2008) — 7pm, Sunday, February 28, 2010

All films are free and open to the public, subtitled in English, and will be followed by a discussion session.

The two films that I’m most interested in seeing are Departures and The Class, both of which have received high praise from a number of friends. (And what’s more, Departures won the 2009 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.)

Many thanks to Aaron and Ryan for bringing this to my attention.
