(March 1, 2017) – Carson-Newman University’s annual Mossy Creek Documentary Arts Festival is slated for Wednesday, March 15 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the Phoenix Theatre, located in Henderson Humanities Building.

“Extraordinary Stories and the People Who Tell Them” is the theme for this year’s edition of the arts festival, according to Dr. Mark Borchert, director of the C-N film program. Special guests include Steve Dean, the creator of “The Heartland Series:” Amy Nicholson, an advertising creative turned filmmaker; and John Harrison, an Academy Award-nominated cinematographer.

The festival will feature a number of films from Carson-Newman students as well as the premiere of the short film “The Scout” produced by the C-N narrative film class last fall.

The Mossy Creek Documentary Arts Festival screens documentary shorts and feature films for the campus and community. It is a place for students, faculty, filmmakers, photographers, and the general public to share in stories and consider important issues facing the region and the world. Past festivals have featured Academy Award-winning filmmakers and compelling new documentary projects.

All screenings are free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
