Event website

The Maine Film Association and Portland Media Center are proud to present the Maine Filmmaker Showcase, featuring the Maine-made film NEPTUNE, followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Derek Kimball and Allen Baldwin. This special event will also include NEPTUNE’s Blu-Ray release–get your copy on November 8!

Growing up on a secluded island off the coast of Maine and raised by the island’s insular priest, Hannah Newcombe has led a sheltered life. She has plans to attend a prestigious boarding school on the mainland at the summer’s end but finds her world upended with the sudden disappearance of a classmate, swallowed by the sea. Hannah’s quiet obsession with the missing boy grows, leading to haunting dreams and visions. To pacify them, she attempts to fill the missing boy’s role as a stern-man on his father’s lobster boat. Now, torn between her commitment to the man who raised her and the man she hopes to save, Hannah is confronted with questions of her own identity for the first time.

The screening of NEPTUNE will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Derek Kimball and Allen Baldwin.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Suggested Donation: $5.

Presented by the Portland Media Center and the Maine Film Association, and made possible by the generous support of the Maine Humanities Council.
