THIS WEEK

Lunafest

Girls on the Run of Greater Knoxville invites you to LUNAFEST, a traveling film festival celebrating short films, by, for, and about women.

The centerpiece of our Movie Like It's 1999 flashback weekend is the Wachowski Sisters' heady sci-fi actioner, beloved by audiences and beyond hyperbole in its immediate & lasting effect on mainstream genre cinema. "Whoa" indeed.

The Late Show feature for our Movie Like It's 1999 flashback weekend is another genre game-changer on the level of The Matrix, but produced for literally 1/100th of the price. Think what you will about viral marketing and found footage horror: Blair Witch Project launched both into the mainstream and absolutely traumatized unsuspecting audiences in the process.

Paul Thomas Anderson's third feature confirmed that 1997's Boogie Nights was no fluke: a major young talent in American film had arrived, and he wasn't afraid to shoot for the moon with another sprawling, technically breathtaking emotional epic, brilliantly soundtracked by Aimee Mann.
