Our friends over at Thin Line Film Festival have been really busy lately, as their 8th annual film festival begins today! The 5-day festival spans from Thursday February 18 – Sunday February 22, 2015 and will include film screenings, live music, and photography exhibitions throughout town.

“Having the opportunity to work on a festival that has been a part of Denton culture for 7 years is an honor,” Director of Marketing, Mindy Arendt shares. “Getting to work with people like Josh [Butler], Paul Meltzer, Chris AV and Ed Steele on this year’s fest has been a wonderful adventure. We all work very hard on Thin Line to bring a Denton-worthy festival to the town we all love so much.”

Opening night is going to be a blast! The festival is kicking off with the screening of Midlake: Live in Denton, TX this evening at 7:30pm at the Campus Theatre. Our friends at We Denton Do It got to interview Jason Lee & some of the Midlaker’s about their documentary and you can read that here. “We’ve got our biggest celebrity guest to date, Jason Lee.” Festival Director Joshua Butler shares. “Then we get to party with him at Dan’s after!” After the screening, film critic Chase Whale will be moderating a Q&A with director Jason Lee & and the Midlake boys.

Grab your tickets NOW! You can purchase your all access pass or specific screening tickets here. Tomorrow night be sure to head to Hailey’s to check out Gummy & Solidisco – from what we hear, this is going to be one of the best dance parties to ever hit Denton! Keep checking back in for weekend coverage of the Thin Line Film Festival.
