The photography portion of Thin Line Festival has grown this year, event officials say.
Thin Line is a film, music and photography festival that turns 10 this year. Denton photographer Ed Steele directs the Photography Gallery Experience at the fest. Steele said the photo component of the festival is bigger than ever.
"We are excited to see an increase in photography submissions from extremely talented photographers," Steele said in a press release. "As our name suggests, we are always pushing that thin line a little further and this year we've narrowed our photography submission categories down to just one: 'Show Us Your Best Work.' We asked our submitters to send us that one image, or series of images, that clearly defines their style, scope, and passion."
The photography for this year's festival not only comes from the Denton and Dallas-Ft. Worth area, but from all over the country, including New York, Iowa, Illinois, Arkansas, and New Jersey.
The festival will host photography workshops about copyright law, drone photography and more.
"We'll have plenty of surprises in store for festival goers," Steele said.
The Photography Experience galleries will exhibit more than 100 printed images at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center and an outdoor exhibit on the Square in downtown Denton. Festival galleries will also include a Young Artist Series, featuring work from students at Denton and Ryan high schools, Koan School, Denton Independent School District's Advanced Technology Complex and more. A special gallery at the Golden Triangle Mall will showcase photos from a few of this year's featured films.
General Admission will be free for the public to celebrate this monumental event. All attendees must register .
