RBFS to host film festival review sessions in Bethany Beach

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society will be conducting festival film review sessions during the summer months at South Coastal Library in Bethany Beach.

The festival film review sessions, open to the public, are used to assist with the film selection process for the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival (Nov. 5-9).

Each session will include the screening of a documentary or a feature and a short, time permitting. Reviewers are asked to complete a rating form and may also join in the post film discussion. Festival Program Director Joe Bilancio will facilitate the reviews so viewers can take part in stimulating discussions about what factors determine a film’s suitability for a festival.

Screener copies of films are provided as a courtesy to the film society for the specific purpose of reviewing for consideration as a festival entry, and the copies may be of lesser technical quality and are not designed to be projected on the big screen.

Despite those circumstances, review sessions provide a unique opportunity for film enthusiasts to see a broad scope of films from emerging directors.

Festival film reviews will take place July 7 and 28, and Aug. 4 at the South Coastal Library in Bethany. Film screenings will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
