Here’s your sneak preview of the Oct. 29 edition of Mountain Xpress. This week’s edition features a special guide to the Asheville Film Festival and the Asheville Rejects Film Festival.
The Asheville Film Festival, now in its sixth year, features four days of movies and events in the heart of downtown. There are feature films, documentaries, short films, the latest movies by famed directors, receptions and much, much more. Down in the River Arts District, the Asheville Rejects Film Festival is also holding its annual bash, drawing from some movies that the city fest passed on. We’ve got all the details, including the story on the movies, our critics’ picks, schedules, film summations and anything else you need to find your way around both events.
In this week’s newspaper, you’ll also find a report about local volunteers for the two major presidential campaigns, as well as all of our regular features, from the Asheville Disclaimer and the Edgy Mama parenting column to Cranky Hanke’s movie reviews and News of the Weird.
