Cinema at the Edge
Cinema at the Edge is a relatively young festival, but the global gathering founded by Edgemar Center for the Arts artistic director Michelle Danner has already attracted a top-tier lineup of attendees. Previous years have welcomed guests including Susan Sarandon, John Singleton, and Brett Ratner, and David Mamet and the late George Hickenlooper have helmed panel discussions. And then, of course, there’s the main attraction: a schedule filled with dozens of features and short films from all over the world, loosely knit together by a theme of human connection.
