As part of our Fringe Festival this year, we are hosting 2 screenings of short films at Grail Moviehouse, 17 Foundy St, Asheville, NC 28801.
The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival began in 2003 after Susan and Giles Collard of Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre experienced Fringe festivals in San Francisco and Toronto. They started Asheville’s Fringe in one venue, the beloved BeBe Theatre. But the following year, it had expanded to other venues. The Festival is now a multi-day, multi-venue performing arts extravaganza, with performances in theatres, galleries, clubs and odd spaces throughout Asheville.
Films can be anywhere between 5-15 minutes in length. We encourage you to submit films that push the boundaries of genre and form or otherwise challenge audience expectations. Films should be submitted in a form suitable for an in-person viewing at a small moviehouse. The Asheville Fringe Festival is an adjudicated festival, and we will schedule interviews with some applicants to determine final selections.
