As the official hotel sponsor of the 14th annual Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival, held from March 13-16, 2014, the historic Harbor View Hotel is offering filmgoers and off-season visitors two all-access packages. Throughout the festival guests can enjoy screenings of more than 20 films, post-screening discussions, live music, food, and activities for kids. The opening night’s film on Thursday, March 13, will be shown at Entertainment Cinemas in Edgartown, and all other events and screenings will take place at the Chilmark Community Center.
Attendees can choose from Harbor View’s two Martha’s Vineyard Movie Escape packages, for the perfect opportunity to enjoy the island’s peaceful off-season with special starting rates. Both packages are available March 13-16 and offer a two-night stay (including taxes) and guaranteed access to all films. At a starting rate of $439, the Festival Pass package offers two passes to the festival, while the Couch VIP Pass package, starting at $639, provides preferred seating on a cozy couch in each theater.
Films will include “Fading Gigolo,” a comedy starring Sofia Vergara, Woody Allen, Sharon Stone and John Turturro; “Alive Inside: A Story of Music and Memory,” a documentary that examines the positive effect of music on Alzheimer’s patients; and “Shored Up,” which focuses on controversial issues surrounding East Coast communities that are dealing with coastal erosion and rising sea levels.
