BVU Believes in PUSH!

May 07, 2015

PUSH! Film Festival is less than six weeks away, and there is a lot going on behind the scenes! We are excited to announce that BVU has come on as a major sponsor and will be hosting a FREE “Movie in the Park” on the Friday night of the festival. The PUSH! programming committee has plans for a variety of curated movies, and it is hoped that the BVU-sponsored outdoor film will be a real family favorite – E.T.! Parents who saw this movie as children will get the chance to share it with their own kids – a trip down memory lane while watching one of the all-time great movies. BVU will set up their outdoor screen in Cumberland Square Park, and the movie will start once the sun goes down.

The inaugural festival will be held on June 12—14, 2015 in Historic Downtown Bristol. The festival will host a variety of curated movies, workshops and presentations about film, along with screenings of juried competition films including shorts, features, and films focused on Tennessee and Virginia. Along with the Friday night “Movie in the Park,” films will be shown on the big screen in the historic Paramount Center for the Arts, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum’s Performance Theater, and the Bristol Public Library.
