When film fans head to the South Carolina Children’s Theatre this February to watch movies and documentaries that can’t be found anywhere else, they will be doing it as a renamed festival.
Piedmont Natural Gas Presents Reedy Reels: The Greenville Festival will be held from February 17 to February 19 at the South Carolina Children’s Theatre downtown.
To celebrate this announcement of a new title sponsor and name, organizers are inviting film buffs to Yee-Haw Brewing, 307 E. McBee Avenue, Greenville on Monday, December 12 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. to celebrate as well as give them a first chance to buy tickets.
“Piedmont Natural Gas is excited to come on board as the title sponsor of Reedy Reels. Support of the arts, culture, and community vibrancy is a pillar of Piedmont’s community-giving strategy, and Reedy Reels certainly checks all of these boxes. Additionally, the festival brings together a diverse audience from across the Upstate to enjoy wonderfully creative works by filmmakers from here and afar. Reedy Reels uniquely represents the best of what makes the Upstate a great place to live,” said Hank McCullough, Community Relations Manager for Piedmont Natural Gas.
Festival organizers are reviewing more than 100 submissions from nine countries with more coming in for the three-day festival that includes multiple panel conversations that will engage filmmakers and film lovers alike. Filmmakers from around the country are expected to attend this event and will lead discussions as well.
Tickets include daily passes and weekend festival passes. The weekend festival pass gives attendees entry into all festival screening sessions. Tickets can be purchased on the website, www.reedyreels.com, but people attending the December 12 event will get special discount codes.
“This is our eighth year, and we have grown so much,” said Matt Foster, one of the founders of Reedy Reels. “We are excited to have an amazing partner in Piedmont Natural Gas.”
