(16)

The Asheville Film Festival celebrates the art of film making! Great film making. The kind of film that can only be described with sentences that end with an exclamation mark! Films that excite, entertain and make us walk out of a theater and say, “I’m changed.” Our goal is to showcase thought-provoking films and offer a venue where movie lovers who appreciate independent vision can celebrate this unique art form. We are dedicated to bringing unique, interesting, quality, challenging and entertaining films to Western NC by providing a cultural hub for an emerging film-artists community to showcase their works to the region’s top producers, peers, investors and viewers. Just watch as we earn the title of the premiere film festival of Western NC. We are dedicated to providing opportunities for emerging and innovative creative professionals through our annual film festival, summer camp for teen talent, year round online screenings and an extensive community outreach program.

Only 72 hours away from this event ..so much has happened ! We had over 200 likes in the last month alone! We have so many new things this year but what I am most proud of is we are giving a new award out this year and it is one that is very near and dear to my heart..it is called the Stephanie Digeno award for courage.
It is named for the daughter of a fellow actor who lost her battle with stage 4 cancer July 12th 2016. She served our country as a Staff Sergeant in the US Air Force and was a mother to 3 young children ..she was only 31 years old. I had the privilege of knowing this young lady from the time she was a teenager up until the time of her passing. She NEVER stopped fighting and she NEVER let what was happening to her stop her from being a positive person and she was always doing for others..she was one of the most selfless people I have ever met..She inspired people to not let their circumstances defeat their spirit..no matter what..
This year I am honored to announce that the first ever Stephanie Digeno courage award will be awarded to a man who has faced insurmountable odds in his fight with cancer..and won. He never stopped fighting and kept a positive outlook while also documenting his journey to inspire others..he is the embodiment of what this award is all about..
Congratulations to the recipient of the Stephanie Digeno award for courage ...Gary Moore

I started this festival with a dream, a dream to keep the independent film community alive. I needed a place full of life and beauty and vibrancy to hold the event..then I found Asheville.. with it's majestic mountains, it's ecclectic group of people and everywhere you look...there are people celebrating ..life itself! I fell in love instantly! I am just one man..I don't have a team working on this all year long..just me..I work full time and have a family. My festival may not have all the bells and whistles the big festivals have..(yet) lol! but it has my heart and soul in it and I do it for my true love of the art! Thank you to everyone who supports small business and who supports independent films!
