NewportFILM kicks off its popular outdoors film screenings July 11, events that are mostly picnic-style, bring-your-own-picnic affairs with live music, food vendors, bike valet and often a filmmaker to hold a Q&A after the event. NewportFILM also continues its partnership with Newport Folk Festival for the second straight year with two music documentaries over Folk Fest weekend, with musical guests and follow-up Q&As with filmmakers. Outdoor films start at sunset. Suggested donation for outdoor films is $5. Rain venue for all outdoor events is the Jane Pickens Theatre in Newport.

StoriesWeTell-OneSht.jpgOn July 11, “Stories We Tell” will be aired on the St. George’s School lawn overlooking Second Beach in Middletown.  On July 19, “The Crash Reel” airs on the International Tennis Hall of Fame grass courts in Newport, with film subject, Kevin Pearce, hosting a Q&A after. Aug. 1 sees “Running From Crazy” at Rosecliff Mansion on Bellevue Avenue, with live music by James Montgomery preceding the film. “Running Wild” runs Aug. 8 at the Newport International Polo Grounds in Middletown, with soundtrack writer and musician Steve Poltz playing a concert before. “The Summit” plays Aug. 15 at Easton Beach’s parking lot, and on Aug. 22, “The Short Game” airs at Sweet Berry Farm in Middletown, which will also feature family entertainment prior to the film. Finishing up on Sept. 5 is a film as yet to be named at the Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown.

Films aired in partnership with the Newport Folk Festival will be “Musicwood” on July 27 at the Casino Theater in Newport, where tickets are $15, and producer/director Maxine Trump and Nick Colesanti from Martin Guitars will hold a post-film Q&A. On July 28, “Muscle Shoals” plays at the Jane Pickens Theater in Newport for $12 per ticket, with producer Steven Badger holding a Q&A later, and where a special musical guest from the folk festival will play.
