What started out in 2014 as a small film festival in Chattanooga has turned into what Southern Living magazine has deemed as "The Sundance of the South." The Chattanooga Film Festival is four days of independent films, parties, workshops, discussion panels, and more. Last year's festival drew over 12,000 people, so hurry up and get your badge before you miss out! The festival takes place April 5th-8th at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre
