Best of Rural Route Film Festival 2011

Directed by: Various

Films about rural people and places have inspired this New York-based festival since 2002. In this selection of highlights from 2011, small town life is treated with the same reverence as wonders of the natural world. Meet a country music legend hiding out in the Deep South, firefighters patroling the foothills of California, and a young woman choosing between love and the army in rural Pennsylvania, among many others. A variety of genres, regions, and perspectives make this ideal for city slickers and country folk alike. (2009 - 2011, 94 min., video)
