As the recent
film festival surge starts to settle down here in Boston, it picks up south of the border. In
Newport, where newportFILM's May Mini Fest
gets underway with Matthew Akers's Marina
Abramovic: The Artist Is Present (2012 ), a portrait of the artist as a
brilliant, feminist provocateur. It screens on Friday, May 11 at 7 pm, preceded by a wine reception
at 6 pm. Saturday will start out at 1 pm with Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain
Gagnol's charming, inventive A Cat in
Paris (2011), a nominee for last year's Best Animated Film Oscar.
