May 19th: BIFF To Screen ‘Love Etc.’

May 17, 2011

love_etcBermuda International Film Festival [BIFF] has secured the documentary, Love Etc., as the next film in its monthly screenings series, BIFFlix.

Love Etc. is a witty, poignant and humorous exploration about the universal stages of love, depicted through five real stories over the course of one year in New York City. Young, old, gay, straight – everyone has experienced love – and the joy and frustration that come with it.

From teen romance to a decades-long marriage; newlyweds to a recent divorcee, and even a bachelor so frustrated in his search that he chooses to have children without a partner, Love Etc. documents the intimate journeys of engaging characters aged 18-89, who reflect the city’s diversity, and takes an honest look at life’s most challenging pursuit.

Love Etc. began with a concept from Executive Producer Jonathan Tisch, inspired by the day he spent waiting in line, with his fiancée Lizzie, for their marriage licence at the City Hall Marriage Bureau. Surrounded by an incredible diversity of couples, they saw that everyone there was united by a common hope and belief in love. This room was a microcosm of the city and New York City was a microcosm of the world.

The film will be screened on Thursday May 19th 2011, at 6:30 p.m. at the Tradewinds Auditorium at Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) on Crow Lane in Hamilton. Tickets are available in advances on or at the door on the day from 5:30 p.m. Tickets are price $9 for BIFF members and $13 non-members.

Film running time is 106 minutes. For reservations and all inquiries email or call 293-3456. The film is rated NR.
