Local filmmaker D'Aja Fulmore

The Experimental Film Fest (EFF), in its second year, has received 185 films from 29 countries and will select 30 films from those entries to be screened during a festival set to be held from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Bank of the Arts, 317 Middle Street in New Bern.

Hess said that he started out looking into our local movie theaters as venues, but was impressed with the Bank of the Arts. “It had more of an ‘artsy’ feel to it and was more of what I was looking for,” Hess said.
