We’re planning some great Special Events for this year’s Festival. There’ll be Music, Dance, Food, Drink! Watch this space.  A Film Festival provides more than just films.  It provides an intimate, immersive experience and DOCUTAH Special Events connect attendees to the filmmakers, and the subjects and adds a special involvement with the films. Most are free of charge and open to Festival Pass Holders.  You won’t have this much fun sitting on your couch, watching streamed movies.
