The University of Maine will be the first stop on the Camden International Film Festival’s five-month Aging in Maine screening tour.
A selection of short films titled “Golden Shorts” will be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 18, in DP Corbett on the Orono campus. A question-and-answer discussion with Len Kaye, director of UMaine’s Center on Aging, will follow.
Kaye said beneficiaries will be Mainers “who will leave the film screenings better informed of the issues, places to turn for help and the emerging opportunities associated with Maine’s ranking as the oldest state in the nation.”
The tour, which will show award-winning documentary films in 11 communities around the state from March through July, is designed to engage audiences in intergenerational dialogue around issues of aging and dementia-related illness. More information, including a complete list of films and tour dates is available online.
