Knoxville's first film festival will begin on Thursday Sept. 19 and go through Sunday Sept. 22.
The films will be split into 20 different blocks as well as an opening film on Thursday night. Tickets can be purchased for each block individually or a festival pass can be bought for $75 which grants access to every film.
There will also be a student film competition that viewers can purchase tickets to see. The judges range from a Scripps Networks director to a film studies professor from the University.
