WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - The 17th annual Maine International Film Festival is beginning 10 days of events and screenings from local, national and international filmmakers.

The festival will also honor actress Glenn Close with the Mid-Life Achievement Award.

Saturday’s events will focus on Maine filmmakers. Artists will be able to meet with representatives from groups like the Maine Film Office and showcase their work.

More than 100 films are expected to be featured throughout the festival. Screenings will take place at the Waterville Opera House and at Railroad Square Cinema.
