Regional Showcase

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is excited to announce that the Regional Showcase will take place April 6th – 8th. Originally it was a sidebar of the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival but now it is a separate event in order to provide more screening opportunities for emerging filmmakers to present their films theatrically to a discerning audience.

Filmmakers from neighboring states were invited to submit a short or feature-length film for consideration in the Showcase. Out of 32 films submitted, three features and six shorts were selected for presentation. The filmmakers have all exhibited craft and ingenuity while working within the confines of a small budget.

 

The Sign

View Showtimes

Film Description:

A battle is raging in Salisbury, a small city on Maryland's Eastern Shore, over the existence of a sign commemorating a Confederate General John H Winder. What began as a simple Facebook post, grew into multiple petitions and protests involving local politicians, descendants of the civil war, and social justice warriors. The filmmakers set out to trace the origin of the conflict over the sign. What they realize is the farther they dig, the more conflict seems to exist. The sign has become much more than a historical marker, exposing deep racial divisions and wounds from the complicated history of the Eastern Shore. [2018, US, Runtime: 110 minutes, Not Rated].
