Free Range Film Festival 2018
The 15th annual Free Range Film Festival provides a forum for filmmakers, film lovers, barn enthusiasts and country-living aficionados.
This year’s films includes a documentary about semi-aquatic beaver-like rodents with giant orange teeth that live in Louisiana, a virtual reality music video from the duo Maple & Beach, the story of local artist hero Chris Monroe’s last window exhibition for Treehouse Records and a lot of movies that include exclamation points in the title.
The diversity in directors and subject matter is also of note in the 2018 schedule. Festival organizer, Anne Dugan points out that, “one of the things we continue to be proud of in our programming is that over half of the directors are female, something you don’t usually see on the festival circuit.”
