Fourth Annual Jefferson State Flixx Fest Announces Film Line-Up and Special Guests

The fourth annual Jefferson State Flixx Fest today announced its complete film line-up, special events and notable guests. Flixx Fest returns with a four-day festival featuring more than 60 independent films and documentaries with most showings taking place at The Resource & Event Center (REC) in Fort Jones, Sept. 20-23.

“What makes Flixx Fest significant is not only the variety of world-class films we get to showcase every year, but the access attendees get with cast members and filmmakers right after a screening,” said Megan Peterson, executive director of Flixx Fest. “Fans get to ask questions to a variety of directors, producers and writers who made the film, and that is what everyone seems to love about this event.”

Special events this year include an opening night party at Denny Bar in Etna on Sept. 20, a special feature of Bullitt County at the Avery Theatre in Etna on Sept. 21, a farm-to-fork awards dinner experience at California Heritage Farms in Fort Jones on Sept. 22 and a table reading of the winning screenplay at The REC on Sept. 23.
