appalachian film festival

Submissions are open until June 16th for the Appalachian Film Festival presented by The Foundry Theater. Competition categories include music video, student, short (40 minutes or less), and feature. The first, second, and third place winners for each of the four film categories will receive a custom Appy award made by Blenko Glass.

Mark your calendar for August 18-20th to attend the film festival in Huntington, WV with the featured screenings to be held at the historic Jean Carlo Stephenson auditorium located inside of City Hall.

“Appalachia is a geographical region, but also a lifestyle and a subculture.” For screening at this festival, the filmmakers and/or the film project should, of course, have a connection to Appalachia. “We are accepting films that reflect and celebrate the Appalachian region.”

The Appalachian Film Festival is relaunching this year after being dormant for a decade. In the past, it was held during the years 2003-2013. Specific filmmaker workshops and festival events in addition to the main competition screenings are yet to be announced.
