HILLSDALE, N.J. -- It's the ninth year of the Hillsdale Film Festival, and four more films remain to be screened at the Hillsdale Free Public Library.

Trailers for all four are embedded above.

Literature Professor Edward Shannon, of Mahwah's Ramapo College of New Jersey, will introduce and do Q&A sessions for the films. Admission to the films is free, and refreshments will be available.

Here are the four remaining films:

  • Monday, June 27 -- "Help!" -- Music Night -- This 1965 film is rated G and has a runtime of 87 minutes. "Absurd, delightful and exuberantly messy, 'Help!' is a pure pleasure to watch," the New York Times noted.
  • Monday, July 11 -- "Carol" -- Girls Night Out -- This 2015 movie is set in New York City in the early '50s and tells the story of a forbidden love. It's rated R and has a runtime of 118 minutes.
  • Monday, July 18 -- "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" -- Class Film Night -- Roger Ebert gave this 1948 film starring Humphrey Bogart four stars out of four. This movie is unrated and runs for 126 minutes.
  • Monday, July 25 -- "Rififi" -- Foreign Film Night -- This 1955 film is in French, with English subtitles. The unrated movie -- which Ebert gave four stars and said invented the modern heist movie -- has a runtime of 115 minutes.

Each evening begins at 7 p.m. The library is located at 509 Hillsdale Ave. For more information about library events, visit its website, or follow it on Facebook or Twitter.
