Ken Burns joins benefit for Monadnock film festival
“An Evening with Ken Burns” is planned from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Main Street chocolate shop and café.
“This is our first real public fundraiser,” said MonIFF Executive Director Laina Barakat. “We just have $15,000 more to raise. We would love to be able to walk away with all of that on Sunday, but I think our goal is we would like to make a minimum of $5,000 at the event.”
Filmmakers this year hail from Kosovo, Spain, France, Austria, Germany and Brazil.
“This year we have a ton more international filmmakers,” Barakat said.
“We featured his film last year and gave him the Jonathan Daniels award, that was his first contact with the festival,” Barakat said of Burns.
