Presented by Believe in Bristol, the PUSH! Film Festival in Historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA is a competitive, 3-day celebration of the cinematic and visual arts. Director/producer Bobby Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber) will be part of the opening night events.
By bringing diverse films to our community and showcasing the best regional filmmakers, PUSH! aims to expand the artistic image of our region, engage new audiences in the world of film, and inspire creativity in all of us.
In addition to a diverse variety of curated films, the film festival – now in its second year – will host a juried competition that devotes categories to Best Tennessee Films and Best Virginia Films (shot in the two states or made by a filmmaker from TN or VA), as well as Best Short and Best Feature (open to all films – local, national, and international). This year we will also be recognizing an Audience Award.
PUSH! will also offer exciting parties and get-togethers, along with a variety of educational opportunities for filmmakers and audience members of all ages. Films and workshops will be held across several venues including the historic, art-deco Paramount Bristol, the Bristol Public Library, and the Smithsonian-affiliated Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
