BIG EARS UNVEILS 2024 FILM PROGRAM

The Big Ears Festival is teaming up with filmmakers and curators Lily Keber and Zac Manuel to present a full docket of feature-length films and shorts for the 2024 festival at Regal Riviera in downtown Knoxville. You can also look forward to enthralling conversations with artists and filmmakers around the screenings.

Music is an integral component of any piece of cinema. This year’s film program is an ode to all that music and cinema together can unlock- the intricacies of the human experience, the complexities of love and loss, the emotional depths of sickness and healing, and the transformative power of creation. This curation of films explores the remarkable story behind the creation of 1990’s psychedelic rock, the sonic innovations of Detroit techno, the untold histories of Black Appalachia, and the mythos of Americana through archetypal interpretations of cowboy iconography and real life pioneers. These intersections of cultural histories and personal narratives depict the interconnectedness of our lives, both here on earth and in realms beyond. We are excited to share this collection of films for 2024’s Big Ears Music and Film Festival and together witness the universal resonance of music as the heartbeat of storytelling
