FESTIVAL TRAILER

Event Details

This year’s film festival takes place on November 2&3, 2018 in Davis, West Virginia. The chosen short films will screen at Verglas Media’s studio on the top floor of the historic National Bank of Davis building. The film line-up will be the same both nights, with the Awards Party on Saturday, Nov. 3 only!

Awards

We tip our hats to those who choose filmmaking as their art form. The festival jurors will name an overall award in each category. In addition, we will have a special award selection for Appalachia filmmakers in each category.

Categories

Inspiring adventure films, thoughtful documentaries, fictional dramas full of emotion or comedy…or both. Categories include: Short Adventure, Short Documentary, Short Narrative, Short Animated/Music Video/Experimental. All films must have rights to the music used, or be original music.

Focus

We are excited to be an international film festival, a home for creative, independent short film from around the world. But – there’s no doubt – we sprouted in Tucker. One of our primary goals is to shine a spotlight on the films and filmmakers of our area. We are also seeking to highlight films from the greater Appalachian region in order to showcase the depth of talent and creativity residing within these mountains. We also welcome films from around the world.

Celebrating Short Film

In our third year, Plum Tuckered will once again celebrate the art of short film. And we mean short! Films must be 20 minutes or less. Even though there are many great short films out there longer than 20 minutes, we appreciate your understanding of this rule.

Since the beginning, we have welcomed films from around the world. We believe he juxtaposition of international film alongside local and regional projects is one of the strongest effects that a film festival can have on its audience.

Origin Story

We are a community of artists and entrepreneurs, athletes and musicians, filmmakers and nature-lovers living and working in Tucker County, West Virginia. Our home is one of ancient mountains and storied rivers, high valleys and boom towns. There’s history here, and rejuvination. Culture. Adventure. Art. Life.

We’re getting plum tuckered just thinking about it.
