Today is the first day of the Thin Line Film Fest in Denton.
Thin Line Film Fest is an international documentary film festival held in Denton, Texas – just north of the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. The fifth annual festival is February 10-20, 2012. That’s 11 days! Submissions this year were up 50% and that meant we could program more quality films than ever before.
In competition there are 21 Feature films and 43 Short films. There are 8 Special Presentations and there will be 10 docu-race films for a grand total of 82 documentaries which will screen over 11 days in downtown Denton, Texas.
Another first in 2012 is the Docu-Denton 7K, a documentary video race in which teams have approximately 7,000 minutes to make a short documentary on a randomly drawn topic! Anyone can participate and each documentary will be shown on Feb 18th at the Campus Theatre.
We’ve also added a venue: The Square Donut Theater! We’re converting the 2nd floor of Denton Square Donuts to a high-quality theatrical venue. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy a world premiere documentary in the square donut.
It’s a party like never before as we celebrate five years of Thin Line in downtown Denton. Attend the nightly Thin Line After Party held at a different downtown location every night of the festival. All of this is set in the historic downtown Denton, TX, a college town with two universities and one of the best music scenes in the South. It’s the Thin Line experience and we hope you’ll join us in 2012!
