Entering its third year, the Knoxville Film Festival boasts a stellar line-up that will screen for four days beginning this Thursday (September 17). From films to networking, attendees can expect an amazing weekend in Knoxville's local arthouse theatre, Regal Downtown West Cinema 8.
Opening night kicks off with Frank Hall Green's "Wildlike," a film about a girl who runs from a dysfunctional family environment in Juneau to return to her native Seattle home, braving the harsh Alaskan wilderness and befriending a lonely backpacker with a past of his own. The two forge an unlikely bond along their journey. "Wildlike" also played the Atlanta Film Festival, the Nashville Film Festival and the Macon Film Festival.
The festival highlights feature films, documentaries, and short films from across the globe. Knoxville hosts various workshops and educational events, as well as networking opportunities, special guests, social events, and filmmaking competitions.
