WATERVILLE — Colby College will host the Inaugural Points of View Film Festival April 25-28, screening films, free of charge, at the college and Railroad Square Cinema. The weekend-long festival highlights films from around the world that afford audiences unique glimpses into the lives and perspectives of a wide array of individuals.

The festival will open today at Railroad Square with the Waterville premiere of “War Witch,” nominated for Best Foreign Film in the 85th Academy Awards, and continue through Sunday with screenings of both feature length and short films in Given Auditorium in the Bixler Art and Music Center at Colby College.

Other highlights include Bernard Attal’s “The Invisible Collection” at 7 p.m. on Saturday and “American Promise” at 6 p.m. on Sunday. Several films will be immediately followed by discussion panels, and Attal will be in attendance to discuss his film.

The festival is organized by the students in Assistant Professor Joe Clark’s Film Festivals: Cultures and Practices class in conjunction with the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Colby American Studies Program and the Colby Cinema Studies Minor.
