FilmColumbia marks a decade with over 50 movies and events
CHATHAM– FilmColumbia is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The film festival, which FilmColumbia director Calliope Nicholas calls a labor of love, started in 1999 with 12 films over two days. This year there are more than 50 films over four days–October 22 to 25. Screenings include some big- and not-so-big-name films, as well as the work of first-time filmmakers, shown at the historic Crandell Theatre on Main Street, at the Morris Memorial around the corner on Park Row and at the Tracy Memorial, which is the village hall. Last year the film club sold over 6,000 tickets to people from all over the country, says Ms. Nicholas.
