The Footcandle Film Festival is designed to bring unique, challenging and entertaining films to Western North Carolina every September. The festival is being held by the founders and members of the Footcandle Film Society, a 650-member group dedicated to screening and discussing films on a monthly basis. The society was formed in late 2007 by Alan Jackson & Chris Frye. The inaugural film festival was held in September of 2015.
In mid-July 2019, Footcandle Society Members will be receiving an email with ticket purchasing information. General public ticket purchasing information will be made available on this site in early August 2019.
Both feature-length and short films will be screened at this year’s festival. At the award ceremony that ends the festival weekend, the following awards will be announced: one (1) “Best Narrative Feature”, one (1) “Best Narrative Short”, one (1) “Best Documentary Feature”, one (1) “Best Documentary Short” selected by a jury, and one (1) “Audience Favorite Feature” and one (1) “Audience Favorite Short” selected by those in attendance.
The 2019 film lineup will be announced in mid-July 2019. The lineup with a schedule indicating screening times will be available on the Footcandle Film Festival website.
