Heather Henson's Handmade Puppet Dreams.

A puppet film festival in Ithaca, NY.


PuppHitz Presents Heather Henson’s Handmade Puppet Dreams
Volume VII

 

Heather Henson's Handmade Puppet Dreams is a film series that celebrates puppets in film. We were very happy to bring it to Ithaca, NY for it's first viewing there!

 

From Cinemapolis' web site: 

"Heather Henson curates this touring festival of short puppet films, which offers new editions annually. 

Handmade Puppet Dreams showcases the fresh voices of independent puppeteers who embrace film to explore a spectrum of live-action puppetry styles. Volumes in the series have toured since 2005, screening throughout North America as well as in the Czech Republic, India, the United Kingdom, Israel, and Prague.

PuppHitz is the brainchild of local writer, theatre artist, and master puppeteer, Scott Hitz. This new organization will be the home of a puppet production company (PuppHitz Productions), a performance company (PuppHitz Puppets), and an education company (P.i.E. Puppets in Education). Scott will provide a brief intro to the screening and be on hand for a Q & A after the show."
