Their film creations will be introduced to a fortunate audience of local residents and movie lovers alike in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. A variety of movies will be shown in feature-length blocks. The film festival will be an excellent opportunity for filmmakers, actors and viewers from across the country to interact through seminars, guest speaking opportunities, question and answer sessions with the director and assemblies to encourage brainstorming and expression of new ideas. Fun parties will be organized throughout the weekend, bringing another level of excitement to the festival. Film enthusiasts of all ages are encouraged to join in on the celebration.
