Thin Line is a film, music, and photography festival held over 5 days in Denton, Texas – just north of Dallas / Fort Worth. The 10th annual festival is April 19-23, 2017. For five days, Thin Line will deliver an engaging program of high quality documentary films, world-class music, and a diverse selection of photography.

Thin Line Film is all about documentaries because real life is indeed more interesting (and more powerful) than fiction; and because the documentary genre has much more depth than our festival could ever hope to capture in a single year, but we try. We screen all types of documentaries including hybrid forms such as mockumentaries, docudramas, animated docs, docu-comedies, and if you look closely you may even find a docufiction.

Thin Line Music is the soundtrack of the festival. It’s the perfect mix of styles giving all our guests an ideal way to wrap up the evening. It’s quintessential Denton: national and regional acts on small, intimate stages. A diverse mix of genres awaits festival attendees ensuring the party doesn’t stop until the early

morning.

If film is the cake and music is the icing, Thin Line Photo is the cherry on top. Explore scores of curated print and digitally-exhibited photographs at the

Patterson-Appleton Arts Center as well as a smaller gallery in Golden Triangle Mall (across from Barnes & Noble). All exhibits are completely free and open to the public! Other photo events include free online-only contests and immersive photography workshops.

Thin Line is a one-of-a-kind festival. We’ve combined the best of modern media to create an engaging, multi-layered experience that appeals to all. Come experience it for yourself.

The Meaning of ‘Thin Line’

‘Thin Line’ refers to the space between two opposites such as genius and crazy, fact and fiction, beauty and sadness, knowledge and apathy, right and wrong. There are two sides to every issue and the thin line represents the conflict between the two. Therein lies the drama. It can be seen in every documentary film. It can be heard in every musical performance. It can be studied in every photograph. Life is full of thin lines, and we celebrate them.
