The Footcandle Film Festival is designed to bring unique, challenging, and entertaining films to Western North Carolina every September. The festival is sponsored by the founders and members of the Footcandle Film Society, a 650-member group dedicated to screening and discussing films monthly. The society was formed in late 2007 by Alan Jackson and Chris Frye, with the inaugural film festival held in September 2015.
This event will be held in person and virtually.
