NEW ART FILM FESTIVAL | Our Scene on the Big Screen

Launched on a sincere vote of confidence by Sanford Hess and a community programming gamble by Jason Pankoke, the New Art Film Festival has provided the movie storytellers of downstate Illinois with their own theatrical showcase since 2010. Originally scheduled as a complement to the annual Boneyard Arts Festival of Champaign County in large part due to that event’s lack of film and video content, the NAFF has been hosted by the Art Theater in downtown Champaign for all its shows to date. After producing and hosting nine editions over the same number of years, Pankoke was forced to cancel the tenth NAFF when the Art closed for business in October 2019. Its future is being debated. Below you will find summaries and poster art for each NAFF to review, after which you can dive into the details at the official website and sample selections at its dedicated YouTube and Vimeo accounts. | Jason Pankoke
