Appalachian Film Festival

The Keith-Albee will host the the annual Appalachian Film Festival Thursday April 19 through Saturday, April 21, 2007.

According to the story in Huntington's Herald-Dispatch, "The contest is open to all residents of the 13 states in the Appalachian Region, which includes: West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. The films include documentaries, music videos, features and short films, and four guest speakers will host workshops at the festival."

And the price is right: $2 per person!

Anyone wanna go? The festival schedule can be found at this link.

I'll be the geeky looking guy at the popcorn stand.

$10 says that there will be at least one film there that aims to be the "definative" documentary on the horrors of mountaintop removal (as opposed to the 32432423 others).

I also imagine that there will be something from someone from NYC or LA that got "burnt out" and came to Appalachia because it is "quaint and authentic." They will be "annoying" and "patronzing."

OK, enough being mean-spirited. It looks like fun.
