Y'allywood Film Festival says
The Y'allywood Film Festival brings the best of Southern Cinema to Atlanta, and this block of shorts highlights the films we find to champion something especially southern in one way or another.

Christopher Maloney's "Dogwood" is the story of an elderly school bus driver who befriends a melancholy foster child in rural Tennessee.

"Violet," directed by Brit Wigintton, is a thriller about runaway girls finding common ground and a safe haven in the backwoods of Georgia. However, it isn't long until Violet realizes that everything is not as perfect as it seems and she tries to make a desperate attempt at escape. In order to save her "sisters", she has to make a decision that could change their lives forever.

Virginia native Paul Hinson's "Laurel Run Road" follows a father and daughter in their quest to reconnect in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Hinson eloquently describes his film as "part fiction, part gentle observation of place," and his work often has the feel of a moving postcard from rural Virginia.
