The Kent Film Festival Kicks Off with Campbell Scott

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe 5th annual Kent Film Festival is the Little Engine That Could—a four-day celebration of cinema in a town without a movie theater. Each year, founders Frank and Patrice Galterio and an army of volunteers transform the Kent Community Center into a theater with the aroma of freshly made popcorn filling the lobby. On April 21, the festival began with a benefit sceeening of Company Retreat, a locally-made film written and directed by the actor Campbell Scott, who was on hand to greet his fans and answer their questions about moviemaking.
