Columbia’s first 72 hour film festival will celebrate all the splendid pleasures and diverse riches of the movies!
Brought to you by The Point of View Film Series (P.O.V.) at Tapp’s Arts Center, the festival will emphasize all the broad taste and inventive showmanship you've come to expect from P.O.V. over the course of its existence. Over the course of the Martin Luther King Day Weekend (January 16th – 19th), the Tapp’s Arts Center will be transformed into a functioning 24-hour movie house–think of Cinethon as “giant slumber party meets epic movie marathon". Showcasing both “Curated Selections” picked by expert P.O.V. staff, as well as “Sponsored Selections" chosen by generous sponsors, the mishmash of eclectic tastes and styles is meant to provoke conversation within the community and affirm the sanctuary so many of us find in the darkened theatre. But wait, there’s more! In addition to the fantastic line-up of films, Cinethon will also feature an assortment of live entertainment acts and events. Interspersed throughout the festival, these include surprise guests, movie trivia, live music, raffle drawings, and much more. The proceeds from Cinethon will go toward supplementing Point of View's fiscal budget for 2015.
