Weekly Picks...2/9-2/15. It's all about the film.

This weeks picks are all about the 8th Annual Oxford Film Festival. Super fun weekend for some awesome movies!

While most movies this weekend will take place at The Malco at The Oxford Mall, on Thursday, the film festival will kick off with a very special Thacker Mountain Radio/ Oxford Film Festival fundraiser at The Lyric.  The show will feature filmmaker Les Blank, author Michael Adams, and music by Kenny Brown and Robert Belfour.
Blue Mountain will then take you into the opening kickoff party for the festival, along with 3 short films.

Feature film Where I Begin, co-written by local writer Melanie L. Addington as well as shot in Oxford. It's sure to be a crowd pleaser as an indication from all the great reviews its been receiving.

Feature film Passenger Pigeons, written and directed by Martha Stephens looks really good to me. It's set in the hills of the Appalachia as it works through four different stories of a town dealing with the death of a local miner.

You can pick up a schedule at many of the businesses all over town and tickets can be purchased all weekend long at The Lyric and Amelia.

Happy Viewing!!
