The Plum Tuckered Film Festival is back! PTFF features independent short films from around the country and the world, with a special focus on those from our Appalachia neighborhood.
This year, screenings will take place on two nights – Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3. All films will be shown both nights with doors opening at 4:30 p.m. and films beginning at 5:30 p.m. Saturday night, filmmakers and attendees will mingle and celebrate in an after-party at Stumptown Ales, where the awards will be presented for the best film in each category.
Screenings will take place in Verglas Media’s expansive third floor studio located in the historic old bank building in Davis, West Virginia. Says Verglas Media’s owner and festival director Victoria Weeks: “This year’s festival return celebrates the art of independent filmmaking, as well as the beauty and generosity of those in our tight-knit community who make this event possible.”
This 2018 event showcases a variety of short film genres including narratives, documentaries, music videos and animations. Appalachia filmmakers will qualify for special awards in each category. To qualify as Appalachian, the film must have been produced principally in Appalachia, or the filmmaker should live in or be an Appalachia native.
Friday and Saturday night seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, with a $10 suggested donation at the door. Refreshments from various local businesses will be on hand.
