The Acton Boxborough Cultural Council announces the selections for the 13th annual Our World Film Series. This series features award-winning and critically acclaimed foreign films from around the world. The films selected are Theeb (United Arab Emirates, 2015), directed by Naji Abu Nowar, PK (India, 2014), directed byRajkumar Hirani, and Ode to My Father (South Korea, 2014), directed by JK Youn. Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have decided not to show these films publicly this year, but we will indicate on our website where the films are available (Acton and Boxborough public libraries, Kanopy, Netflix, Prime streaming services).
Also, we are proud to present our 10th Annual Our World Short Film Program. Student filmmakers from Massachusetts college/university film programs submitted their short films for consideration. Thirteen titles from Emerson College, Gordon College, Harvard University, Lesley Art + Design, Middlesex Community College, Suffolk University, and Wellesley College were chosen. More information on these films is available on the ABCC Our World Film Series website and Facebook page.
These short films will be broadcast on Acton TV local cable access (Channel 8 on Comcast and Channel 45 on Verizon cable systems) on Friday May 20th at 7:00 PM and Friday, May 27th at 7:00 PM. Most of these films will also be available later via Acton TVs On-Demand website.
