PUTNEY- Next Stage Arts Project, in collaboration with Tribeca Film Festival former director Nancy Schafer, presents [framed], a brand new series of feature length documentary films, each presented by the filmmaker in an intimate setting at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill.

[framed] films will be screened at Next Stage on six Thursdays, beginning March 30, at 7:30 pm. Each screening will be followed by a question and answer session with the filmmaker. A second group of films will be screened in the fall.

Curator Schafer worked for the iconic Tribeca Film Festival for 11 years, where she was most recently the festival’s executive director. Schafer and Next Stage co-founder Billy Straus met at the Camden International Film Festival in 2015 where Schafer serves on the advisory board, and the idea of programming a documentary series for Next Stage was born.

The films in the [framed] series have recently played on the festival circuit around the world including Sundance and Tribeca, and all have been recognized with festival honors. The eclectic lineup explores a wide range of issues including gender, incarceration, beauty, otherness, greed, and the role of family and tradition. Schafer adds, “Each of the [framed] films celebrates the power of skillful storytelling, and I think audiences will delight in the unexpected perspectives these films bring to the screen.”

A series pass for the six films is $50. Individual event tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. Tickets are available online at www.nextstagearts.org.
