The Thin Line Film Fest to open with GASLAND

Press Release
GASLAND To Open Thin Line Film Fest

DENTON, TX - Thin Line Film Fest is pleased to announce the opening film for the upcoming 2010 festival held February 17-21, 2010. Two weeks after its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, GASLAND will make its Texas Premiere February 17th at 7PM at the historic Campus Theatre in downtown Denton, TX. The screening event will be attended by the filmmakers as well as those from North Texas featured in the film. The opening night reception will follow the screening.

When filmmaker Josh Fox discovers that Natural Gas drilling is coming to his area—the Catskills/Poconos region of Upstate New York and Pennsylvania, he sets off on a 24 state journey to uncover the deep consequences of the United States’ natural gas drilling boom. What he uncovers is truly shocking. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown, Josh and his banjo encounter EPA whistle blowers, congressmen, world recognized scientists, and some of the most incredibly inspiring and heart-wrenching stories of ordinary Americans fighting against fossil fuel giants for environmental justice.

Thin Line Film Fest: Texas' International Documentary Film Festival is held February 17-21, 2010 in Downtown Denton, TX. Tickets and passes for all events will go on sale January 18th corresponding with the launch of the updated festival website featuring the complete 2010 lineup along with summaries, trailers, and more.
