Black Bear Film Festival Brings the Secrets of 007 to Milford Theaters
What would normally be “stirring” news must now be “shaken”: the 13th Annual Black Bear Film Festival is bringing secret agent 007 to screens near you. On Saturday, October 13th at 6pm on the Main Stage in the Milford Theatre, the Black Bear Film Festival, in cooperation with EPIX Films, will present Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007.
Showing in Milford just 8 days after its premier in New York City, this incredible EPIX exclusive documentary debuts just in time to prepare audiences for the new blockbuster Bond film, Skyfall. The documentary, produced by Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Passion Pictures and Red Box Films, focuses on three very important men behind the success of the James Bond franchise: producer Albert R. Broccoli, Harry Saltzman, and author Ian Fleming. This incredible film gives you a unique behind-the-scenes peek at the Bond films and the men who created the longest running film franchise in cinema history, since Agent Bond first appeared in 1962.
As well as getting a brand new perspective on the 007 series right before the new film premiers, Black Bear Film Festival audience members also get an exclusive opportunity to meet Hilary Saltzman, daughter of Harry Saltzman, one of the original producers and owners of the Bond brand. Ms. Saltzman will be available for a Q&A session after the viewing of Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007.
The Black Bear Film Festival began in Milford, PA, in 2000 when a small group of creative locals set out to produce an event that would support and promote innovate and independent films. The Black Bear Film Festival celebrates Milford’s rich film-making heritage and the conservation movement in tribute to Gifford Pinchot, who fathered the American conservation movement. Zane Grey, D.W. Griffith, Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and John Barrymore are just a few of the film legends who have lived in and visited Milford in the past. The Black Bear Film Festival has been a huge success, packing theaters and selling out tickets for over a decade thanks to its engaging movies, entertaining parties, a free film salon, and more.
Today, the Black Bear Film Festival has returned to its home in the newly-renovated Milford Theatre, and continues to support independent films, artistic expression, education, diversity, and cultural enhancement, particularly promoting the region’s clean air and water, abundant wildlife, natural beauty and the entities that protect them. The Black Bear Film Festival is Northeastern Pennsylvania’s Premier Independent Film event, and will be hosted at the Milford Theatre, in Milford, PA.
