Attention film buffs: The opportunity to see "great" films this winter is coming to a theater near you.
Peninsula College and the Port Townsend Film Festival once again are partnering to bring the "Movable Fest" to Port Angeles. This is the second year the college and the film festival have brought films shown at the Port Townsend Film Festival to Peninsula College's Little Theater on the main campus.
It kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 12, with a screening of the award-winning documentary "More Shoes" by filmmaker Lee Kazimir. Audience members will have the opportunity to meet the filmmaker in person and ask him questions after the screening. The film documents Kazimir's six-month journey from Madrid to Kiev on foot - walking through seven countries and covering some 3,000 miles in the process.
The movies continue on Friday nights during the college's winter quarter. Dates and the films include:
• Jan. 16: Recently restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive, "The Exiles" (Kent MacKenzie 1961) portrays contemporary Native American life on film.
• Jan. 23: The documentary "1000 Journals" (Andrea Kreuzhage, 2007) is described as a "global message in a bottle" and is a film about people whose lives are touched by 1,000 traveling journals.
• Jan. 30: "Paula's Secret" (Gernot Krää 2006) was an audience favorite at the Port Townsend festival and winner of the 29th International Children's Film Festival. It is the story of 11-year-old Paula who is secretly in love with a prince who doesn't exist except in her diary and how she tracks down the thieves
who stole it.
• Feb. 20: Paul Newman is honored in "Catch The Hustler" and "The Color of Money."
• Feb. 27: "August Evening" (Chris Eska, 2008) follows an undocumented aging worker, Jaime, and his young widowed daughter-in-law Lupe as their lives are thrown into upheaval.
• March 6: "A Snowmobile for George" (Todd Darling 2008) is a rambunctious road trip that collects the stories of fishermen, cowboys and firemen faced with the consequences of the Bush administration's elimination of environmental rules.
