Sometimes you get a bit tired of the same old thing when it comes to movies. Whether it be special effects laden films, gross out comedies, or whatever Oscar bait dramaHollywood has decided to toss at audiences, theater goers might want something a bit fresh.
Not suggesting you can’t have a great time watching films that you can catch at a convenient local movie theater, because we always like an escape, which most movies provide. The point here is, why not try to widen up your selections, for such escapist fair.
A host of neighbors to Abberly Green offer such a variety, with a slew of upcoming film festivals. Most of these festivals aren’t around the corner, so why not make a weekend trip out of it? Reserve a room in one of the cities, and enjoy an entire weekend of movie watching, along with hanging out at a host of local haunts in each respective city.
Your escapist palate will be broadened, and you’ll have gotten a great weekend trip out of it. We’ve listed a few of the festivals below as provided by NC Film.com, but head here for a more complete list.
