Bay Film Series 2023
Thursday February 16th 2023
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Bay College, Besse Center Theatre
2001 N Lincoln Rd Escanaba, MI
Cost: $5 Admission / $2 Students
The Bay Film Series marks its 21st year at Bay College celebrating the art of filmmaking by showing the best in international, documentary, and independent cinema. The College and Bay Film Series Coordinator and Instructor, Nanci Love, are excited to announce the release the film titles for winter 2022-2023.
“Streaming and lockdown have altered the landscape of what’s available for public showings. I’m happy to announce that movies are again available as we enter our ‘Race to the Oscars’ annual showcase,” says Nanci Love, Bay Film Series Coordinator and Instructor.
On February 16, the series continues with TAR, which focuses on a German conductor and author as she navigates the currents of art, power, creativity, and consequences. Star Cate Blanchett is the odds-on favorite for the Best Actress category (Gold Derby). James Berardinelli of ReelViews says the film “possesses an emotional and intellectual honesty that makes it seem more real than countless made-for-mass-consumption biopics.” The Detroit News called it a “stark and shattering work.”
All Bay Film Series movies are shown in Bay College’s Besse Center Theater at 7 p.m. ET in Escanaba.
Tickets are $5 for the public and are available at the Box Office or can be purchased online.
K-Bay Students can purchase tickets at a reduced admission of $2. Tickets must be purchased in person to receive discount.
