PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- The Field Library has announced a  new Black and Hispanic Heritage Film Collection that will  begin  in March, with new films added every few months.

“The Field Library is a place for movie lovers of diverse backgrounds and color, and our goal is to make Peekskill one of the richest repositories of Black and Hispanic cinema in Westchester County,” said Alicia Morgan, curator of Arts and Cultural Programs. “The collection will allow patrons access to films from talented writers, directors, actors and cinematographers which they might never have seen in more mainstream collections.

In addition to the new collection, the library is also working in collaboration with Paramount Hudson Valley to present the Peekskill Film Festival on May 13 and 14. The event will offer residents an important opportunity to view new works by emerging filmmakers, including features, shorts, documentaries, animation and student work.

This year, the festival will also concentrate on black and Hispanic filmmakers and themes, featuring films sorely overlooked in more conventional festivals. Through informative workshops, and networking opportunities, the festival will facilitate educational and career-oriented programming for students of film and filmmakers.
