Beaufort International Film Festival gets underway

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - It's lights, camera, action for the 6th annual Beaufort International Film Festival. Filmmakers and movie lovers got to meet face to face Wednesday night to talk about their work and watch a few up and coming pictures. This year's festival also honors the work of longtime actor Powers Boothe, star of films like Tombstone and Sin City and hit TV shows 24 and Deadwood. He says he is happy to finally meet some of his fans.

"When you have a personal conversation with folks like here and other places, it is encouraging when they appreciate your work. Anyone likes to have their work appreciated," said Boothe.

The film festival goes on all week long. Visit http://beaufortfilmfestival.com/schedule.html for a full schedule of events.
