Twin Rivers Media Festival

We are proud to co-sponsor the 20th Annual Twin Rivers Media Festival. The festival will feature  50 selections that include world premier feature films, shorts drama, documentary and animated films

20th Annual Twin Rivers Media Festival
May 17-24, 2013

The Phil Mechanic Building
109 Roberts Street, Asheville


Local films are well represented this year with a short called “Over Home” featuring WNC musicians and Asheville filmmaker LisAnna will be presenting her short film “Orphan.”

Short drama and feature films vary from some set on the streets of India, Moscow, Mexico City or Tokyo, to one smuggled out of Iran. The US entries provide dramatic looks at injustice against the Japanese Americans during World War II, and range from comic to tragic looks at society’s misfits and dysfunctional families. The award winning short film this year is Mousse, a comic look at robbery and justice.

Documentary films range from films examining a massacre in Afghanistan to dancing in the Appalachian Mountains. The Animation and Experimental film categories are also well represented.
