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 more than 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 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). New for 2020 the Curbside Cinema Drive-In Movie Series: four outdoor movies viewed from the comfort of your own car.
