Why a film festival? Why now?
It is no secret that Asheville has an incredible arts community. Part of that community enjoys a good independent film or two.
Making a film is a magical thing. You start with just an idea swimming around in your brain juice. Then you develop it into a story. You then get all kinds of people involved in creating this story into a film. Eventually, you have a completed film in front of an audience. You watching their reactions to what they are watching. You bursting with pride when it is over. They come to you, congratulate you. All of this started as a little idea bouncing around in your nogging noodle.
That is why we do it. To let film makers tell a story. To let actors entertainer. And, of course, to let fans enjoy!
