The Newburyport Documentary Film Festival (NDFF) has selected the short film “The Beautiful Worlds of David Riley” for their 2022 film festival. The film will be shown Saturday, September 17 at 11:30 AM at The Screening Room theater on State Street in downtown Newburyport as part of the festival’s “Off

The Beaten Path” shorts program. Following the screening, there will be a question-and-answer session with the director. For those who are unable to attend the screening in person, the film will stream as part of the NDFF’s virtual film festival the following week. Tickets are available on-line at the Newburyport Documentary Film Festival’s website: https://www.nbptdocufest.org/ The fifteen-minute short film is a collaboration between East Boston artist David Riley and Waltham documentary filmmaker Cathleen O’Connell. O’Connell first became aware of Riley’s art when she admired one of David’s paintings at a friend’s home in Chelsea. That led to an introduction to the artist at an Open Studio at the Atlantic Works Gallery in East Boston in 2018.
