Cinema festival debuts in Asheville Nov. 3-6

A new film festival that will be held from Thursday through Sunday (Nov. 3-6) in Asheville will feature 39 films from more than 20 filmmakers and includes a number of panels and workshops.

The first Asheville Cinema Festival’s executive director is Wyman Tannehill, who grew up in Haywood County.

“The festival is designed for everyone. The goal is to bring more independent film to Western North Carolina,” Tannehill told the Asheville Citizen-Times. “There are a lot of great films out there that might not otherwise play here.”

Films include features, documentaries, shorts, foreign and student films from around the world, as well as WNC films.

Tickets are $5 online and $6 at the door for each of the films. A package of five tickets for $20 is also available online. Venues include the Asheville Community Theater, the Masonic Temple at 80 Broadway St., the Regal Biltmore Grande 15, Biltmore Park, Town Square and the Lexington Avenue Brewery.
