The Kingston Film Festival kicks off at noon on Thursday, August 14 and promises to bring in a bevvy of independent dramas, documentaries, thrillers, animation, and a host of other motion picture offerings until it ends on August 17. Established two years ago by co-founders Trevor Dunworth and Astrid Cybele, the film festival begins on August 14 with the documentary Never Enough, which explores the mindset behind extreme collecting boarding on hoarding. The opening night film will be Cold in July starring Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepherd, and Don Johnson, parts of which were filmed in Kingston and Esopus. The Chronogram Block Party dovetails with the festival on August 16 starting at 4pm, and the festival closes on August 17 with the documentary The Dog, chronicling the life of John Wojtowicz, the real life inspiration behind the legendary movie Dog Day Afternoon about Wojtowicz’s attempted robbery to pay for his lover’s gender reassignment surgery. You can see the whole schedule here on the Festival website. All screenings will take place at BSP in uptown Kingston.
