One of the largest American film festivals in the South. Moviemaker Magazine recognizes it as one of the "Coolest Film Festivals in the World” and one of "50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” for many more. Known for its gorgeous riverside setting and its laid-back, rock n' roll atmosphere, this non-competitive festival showcases more than 150 worldwide films, a diverse selection of Stage performances (bold, original productions in dance, music, comedy, and theater), and more than 50 Connect Conference events (entrepreneurship-focused panels, speakers and workshops).
