The Magic Lantern is delighted to announce the beginning of its 31st Annual Fall Film Festival starting Friday, September 25th.  It’s going to be an unusual Festival this year.   The Festival will go on for the entire month of October and the films are going to be booked for full week runs so there will be ample opportunity to see them. The event will open with three diverse films.  The Dark Divide a life-changing expedition across one of America’s largest undeveloped wildlands, Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest.  It’s a beautiful, quiet, lyrical, funny wilderness trip, and a meditation on loss and picking up the pieces staring David Cross and Debra Messing.  The Burnt Orange Heresy is an erotic thriller set in the high-end art world loaded with plot turns with Italy’s Lake Como serving as a lavish background.

Currently, the festival line up includes Warren Miller’s bio-epic Ski Bum, a quirky British mystery/comedy Sometime Always Never, the third marvelous travelogue with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, The Trip to Greece, ...
