The Rural Route Film Festival was created to highlight works that deal with rural people and places. This will be Rural Route’s first screening in Philly.

We have an all-new killer ‘best of/shorts’ tour program, and it includes some of our favorite narrative films ever, like the whimsical, inverted French fairytale, “Sacha the Bear”, the well-stated, South Dakota shocker,“A Short Film About Ice Fishing”, the N. Wales sci-fi thriller, “The Water’s Edge”, the story of a closeted drag queen/Mexican farm boy, “Un Buen Hijo”, and two amazing films from Australia – “The Hunter” (a sand animated timeless folk tale) and “Crosshairs” (a textbook perfect drama about 2 poaching brothers). And on top of that, the program includes 2 films from famed ethnographer, Robert Gardner, a documentary about a painter and his Montana ranch subject, a macro experimental film on the bugs of Golden Gate Botanical Garden, and an archival/found piece about the best street cleaner and self-taught guitarist from Norton, Virginia!
