McDowell Arts Micropolitan Film Festival

7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Historic Marion Depot

Showcasing the work of Micropolitan folks in our region (and beyond), producing film projects that don't quite fit into any niche genre, category, or competition, with submissions from both emerging and experienced filmmakers, emphasizing the artistic passion, vision, and independent spirit of original cinematic storytelling.

Hosted at the Marion Train Depot, enjoy this year's collection of curated short films ranging from Comedy to Psychological Drama and everything in-between. Like traditional film festivals, these short films are to be enjoyed in a casual setting amongst friends and community members. Vote for your favorite during our "Audience Choice" and ask questions from the filmmakers in attendance.
