Thin Line Fest | A Virtual Pop-up Experience March 23-28
The biggest documentary film festival in Texas returns — virtual pop-up style — March 23-28. Presented by streaming specialists, Falcon Events, Thin Line Fest 2021 is delivering six days of world-class cinema and music directly to viewers. 27 features. 44 shorts. 17 musical performers — all live-streaming directly into the audience’s homes for free.
Thin Line Fest 2021 is a unique live virtual experience — audience members will experience real-time screenings together. The fest’s virtual platform offers attendees the chance to mingle with filmmakers, musicians, and other attendees in virtual venues between screenings and performances.
“Over the previous year, most festivals have adopted an on-demand format similar to Netflix,” said Thin Line founder Joshua Butler. “Thin Line Fest has instead focused on creating an ‘in the moment’ and live experience across six days of watch-it-or-miss-it programming.”
The THIN LINE Difference
“The movie-going experience has changed, obviously, but filmmakers are still telling important stories,” said Butler. “We’re thrilled to offer viewers the opportunity to see films they ordinarily might not get a chance to see — all from the safety and comfort of their couches.”
Taking place March 23-28, Thin Line Fest 2021 showcases acclaimed documentary films from across the globe. This year’s line-up includes an Oscar-nominated short, ten international films celebrating US premieres, two world premieres, and work featured at film festivals like Slamdance, IDFA, Sundance, Visions De Reel, Big Sky, and SXSW. Additionally, attendees will enjoy live-streamed performances from some of the most respected musical artists Texas has to offer.
An Array of Subjects
With stories set in Russia, Iran, Brazil, and across the USA, Thin Line features award-winning and Oscar-nominated filmmakers. Among this year’s documentaries, topics covered are vast: environment, education, social injustice, music-movement-arts, space exploration, incarceration reform, advocacy for disabilities, political action, universal workforce, LGTBQ, major-city gentrification, military history, photography, and more.

About THIN LINE FEST
Thin Line Film is the longest running documentary film festival in Texas. We love documentaries because real life is more interesting than fiction! Generally, we believe that documentaries should communicate the Truth. However, we love watching documentaries when we can’t tell if it’s real or not!
Thin Line Music is the soundtrack of the festival. It’s the perfect mix of styles from national and regional acts on small and intimate stages. An exciting and eclectic mix awaits our virtual festival participants.
Thin Line is a one-of-a-kind festival. Powered by Falcon Events, we’ve combined the best of modern media to create an engaging, multi-layered experience that appeals to all. Join us for an immersive festival experience.
