Lewiston, Maine's dynamic Emerge Film Festival will take place Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12.
This second annual event will kick off with a special 10th anniversary screening of 217 Films' 2005 film "Cleophas and His Own."
This film is based on Lewiston-native Marsden Hartley's epic poem of the same name and made its world premiere in Lewiston in 2005. It was shot entirely in Maine, including scenes at Washburn Norlands Living History Center in Livermore Falls, just outside Lewiston.
This film screening will be held as a fundraiser for Emerge. More detail will be posted soon on the festival website.
