FFOCOL will kick off on September 21 as part of the sixth annual Independents’ Day, which celebrates and develops independent culture, commerce, and creativity. Independents’ Day features live music on multiple stages, artists, street performers, food trucks, beer tents, and more. This year, FFOCOL will also be providing a film component to the celebration.
Following its success last fall, FFOCOL continues to strive to create an experience that will bring a new and diverse cultural event to the area. The festival aims to bring people together, showcasing seasoned and rising filmmakers and extraordinary work from around the world all while raising awareness of Columbus and Central Ohio as a filmmaking destination.
Opening film this year will be the highly acclaimed documentary Good Ol' Freda. It's the story of Freda Kelly and her time spent working with the Beatles. The documentary has been a huge hit this year along the festival circuit and seems a natural fit for the Independents' Day partnership.
Independents’ Day is very excited to host the opening night of the Film Festival this year,” said Wolf Starr, Director of Development and Public Affairs for Independents’ Day. “In our continued mission to support art of all kinds, FFOCOL provides us an outlet to share more independent media with our neighbors and festival attendees.
FFOCOL, pronounced FOCAL, is a new breed of film festival for Columbus and the Midwest. The festival aims to create an experience that brings people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. It is through the art of cinema that we foster a community that is more engaged, aware, and alive.
