Asheville Cinema Festival Now in its 3rd Year

November 7 - 10   Asheville Cinema Festival   The 3rd annual festival with 40 films including a mix of feature-length movies and shorts. Downtown Asheville viewing venues are the Asheville Community Theatre and the Masonic Temple theater. Opening and closing night events are at the Biltmore Grande cinema at Biltmore Park in south Asheville.

The Asheville Cinema Festival (ACF) was founded by Tom and Sandi Anton in 2011.The founders of ACF first established the Asheville Cinema Society (ACS) in 2010 with the goal of bringing beautifully crafted independent films to the area, films that otherwise may not have been shown. As a third year festival, it is thrilled to present films that are currently receiving awards at some of the top film festivals around the country. ACF 2011 screened The Artist three months before it hit the theaters. The Artist went on to win a Best Picture Academy Award. Last year, ACF 2012 opened the festival with “Silver Linings Playbook” that went on to garner a Best Actress Academy Award for Jennifer Lawrence.
