One of the largest American film festivals in the South. Moviemaker Magazine recognizes it as “One of the Coolest Film Festivals in the World” for over three years in a row, 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 300 worldwide films, a diverse selection of Stage performances (bold, original productions in dance, music, comedy, and theater), and over 50 Connect Conference events (entrepreneurship-focused panels, speakers, and workshops).
