The Johnson City Film Festival has expanded to become the Appalachian Film Festival! Our region is rich in creative arts and we are excited to invite you to submit to a festival surrounded by beautiful mountains, small town charm, and an audience eager for quality filmmaking.
We have categories for feature, short, documentary, student, and local, as well as awards for multiple categories.
Our screenings will take place in Johnson City and throughout the Appalachian Highlands region. The weekend is sure to be filled with amazing experiences and you have the opportunity to be part of the film revolution in Northeast Tennessee!
Prizes will be awarded, specific amounts and categories to be determined at a later date.
