A joyous communal experience!
What began as offbeat programming for the internationally renowned Walker Arts Center soon became so popular that the event had to move from the museum to the St. Paul Saints stadium!
This remarkable reel of the latest and best videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and classic Internet powerhouses.
Join the fun! Submit short, under-1-minute videos of your special feline friend for prizes and inclusion in our pre-show program by posting on social media with the hashtag #CatsofNewBedford, #ZeiterionPets or #CatsofMewBedford. Prizes include gift cards to Mellisa's Pet Depot!
This event supports Moby Kit Rescue, an animal shelter serving Southcoast MA.
Cinema New Bedford presents films that spark conversations, “big feelings,” and new perspectives. Our mission is to help create and sustain a robust cinephile community in New Bedford, promote the art of cinema, and build community through collective engagement that brings joy, sorrow, and everything in between.
Programming includes film series such as 4 By Scorsese, Winter Whimsy: Wes Anderson, and Best of the Fests; Community and issue focused screenings such as FLEE (refugees and immigration), I AM GRETA (climate change) and ATLANTIS (Ukraine); and special events such as DOWNTON ABBEY at Rotch-Duff-Jones House, MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON with Jenny Slate live, and CatVideoFest, a compilation of the latest and best cat videos from around the world.
This series is curated by Mocha James Herrup, PhD, founder of the New Bedford Film Society. Mocha James draws from their work as a film professor, arts and culture writer, and film festival programmer to bring films that help us see the world in a new light.
The collection of Mocha James' program notes for Cinema New Bedford films is available here.
