The mission of the Knoxville Film Festival is to recognize and celebrate the art of independent cinema. The festival will feature 50 hours of film screenings, as films will be screened all four days of the festival on two screens at the Downtown West Cinema.

Several workshops will be presented by industry experts allowing both professional and aspiring filmmakers to learn more about the film industry. Festival management is also securing the attendance of several professional directors, producers, screenwriters, etc. in order to show festival attendees to learn first-hand about the filmmaking process.

Also happening at the festival is the 7-day Shootout Filmmaking Competition, in which teams of local filmmakers are given 7 days to make a 7-minute movie. All films will be shown a special screening during the film festival.

The lineup for the Film Festival will be announced by mid-August, and more information can be found by going to
