Films you might know shot in Southern Appalachia inlcude “Dirty Dancing,” “Goodbye, Miss 4th of July,” “The River,” and “What about Bob,” among others. SOAPIFF, with support from East Tennessee State University, the Northeast Tennessee Art Commisssion, the JCDA, business and individual sponsors, presents films from the Festival competitions, retrospective screenings, related educational seminars and promotional events during the annual Southern Appalachian International Film Festival. SOAPIFF revives an annual film festival in the greater Tri-Cities, Tennessee, the birthplace of the oldest continuous independent film festival in the American South (the Sinking Creek Film Celebration). SOAPIFF will entertain, educate and also present speakers, seminars and other art forms that play collaborative roles in film production and promotion. The Organizers provide selected entrants with an opportunity to showcase their movies in multiple theatres, and, when possible, via distribution for promotional purposes before, during and after the Festival. SOAPIFF places films in the Archives of Appalachia at ETSU for preservation and research. All entries are added to the Festival collection in the Archives of Appalachia where they may be preserved indefinitely.
