A film fest and "cinephile retreat," the inaugural Piction Picturefest in Prince Edward County, Ontario, will run from July 7-10. The event will include films, workshops, youth education and camping.

Picturefest's diverse programming will kick off with a tribute to Tilda Swinton and Mark Cousin's 2009 event, "A Pilgrimage," which brought together 50 people, including Knegt, who aided them in moving a mobile movie theater across the Scottish Highlands. Knegt left inspired by the community-oriented cinematic experience. More information is here and the lineup is below:

-directers Peter Knegt (of indieWIRE) and Jennifer MacFarlane say:

"We wanted to advance and celebrate cinema as a form of community building... The artistic community that has been fostered [Picton] in the past decade is incredible. In the past few months, the response from the community toward the event has been very inspiring. From media artists to animators to puppeteers, Prince Edward County has a cultural currency comparable to a community twenty times its size.”
