Feb 19, 2013 —  There are very few acts that are more American than buttering up a big tub of overpriced popcorn and plopping down in a dark, air-conditioned theater to watch a movie. No matter what the economic climate or the climate outside their houses is like, people flock to their local theaters year-round to escape the stresses of real life for a couple of hours.

In addition to offering customary popcorn, American film festivals present avid movie lovers and folks on the other side of the movie screen – directors, producers, writers, financiers, and studio executives – an opportunity to come together to celebrate the past, present, and future of cinema.

The energy at film festivals in the U.S. can’t be replicated at a neighborhood cineplex because the prospect of bumping into an established industry veteran like George Clooney in the bathroom or grabbing a drink with the future Ben Affleck and Matt Damon writing duo at a lavish after party is too exciting.

If rubbing elbows with a couple of up-and-comers from Boston – or anywhere in America – doesn’t sound appealing, don’t worry. Film festivals in the U.S. do an excellent job at incorporating the best film work from across the globe, so you can meet a handful of international stud directors and talent too.

If you’re scouting for a new location to chow down on your buttery movie popcorn, make sure to give these American film festivals some serious consideration.
