"Team DRBA", Brian Williams & Jennifer Doss, in front of the historic Rives Theater.
More than 100 friends of the Smith River packed the Rives Theater on Friday night for the first annual Smith River Film Festival. Guests enjoyed a jam packed show featuring films by Andy Parker, Iris Gillispie, Jason Burton, Trent Fentress, James Whitlow, Linda Drage, Lynn Pritchett, Darrin Doss, Jennifer Doss, Brian Williams, and Southside Up Productions. The audience laughed at river bloopers, admired the scenic beauty on the Smith River and even got a close up look at some of the region's wildlife.
Several lucky audience members even won door prizes! They were Niel Tatum, Joshua Ticker, Dale Swanson, Jim Tobin, Mike Leggett, Paula Bowen, Danny Smith, Barbara Thompson, Tamara Poles, Brad Wright, Barb Speece, Trent Fentress, and Marcia Dameron. Thank you to Southeastern Outdoor Supply, Angler's Choice, Applebee's, Chick-fil-A, Smith River Sports Complex, and Great Outdoor Provisions for providing door prizes for the event!
Now the question on everyone's mind is "who won the film contest????"
Join us at 3 p.m. Monday at the Smith River Fest stage to hear the contest winners announced. Hope to see you there. And don't forget to join us on Sunday from 2-6 p.m. for DRBA's Gear Swap!
