Micropolitan Film Festival 2019: Event to showcase local, regional filmmakers starts Friday at MACA
A premiere movie event for local artists and regional up-and-comers continues as the second annual Micropolitan Film Festival returns this Friday and Saturday.
Produced by McDowell Arts Council Association (MACA) in the “micropolis” of Marion, the mission of MFF is to showcase artists in the Western North Carolina region who are producing independent short film projects that don’t quite fit into any niche genre, category or competition. The MFF welcomed submissions from both emerging and experienced filmmakers, emphasizing the artistic passion, vision, and independent spirit of original cinematic storytelling.
This year, the festival will showcase 15 juried short films (all with a runtime under 15 minutes) to be screening this weekend, with each night displaying different showtime blocks: “Regional Renegades,” scheduled Friday at 7 p.m., features films from across North Carolina; and “Hometown Heroes,” scheduled Saturday at 7 p.m., features short films made in Marion and neighboring towns…..
