Celebrating the stories of Appalachia.
Heres a recap of the week leading up to the sold out inaugural Boone Film Festival.
We had two special guests come to town. Our host , Patrick Wilkinson, and VFX legend, Dean Lyon.
Two Rivers middle school did a field trip to the Marriot in Boone, NC where students got to meet Dean Lyon and participate in his presentation, To Middle Earth and Back. He talked about his journey in the film industry from before there were computers to the time he worked on the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
We did the another talk afterschool at Watauga Highschool and also friday at the footsloggers pre party.
We had a special film trivia session at AMB to promote the event
The red carpet and showcase were a huge success!
Can't wait for next year!
