Westobou: Film

Sunday, Oct. 7
I'm Fine, Thanks pemieres Oct. 7 at the Imperial Theatre.

Westobou wraps up its celebration of the arts with a day dedicated to film through the Southern premiere of a new feature-length documentary I’m Fine, Thanks. The film, supported by publicly-garnered “crowdsourced” funding through Kickstarter, follows Crank Tank Studios’ Grant Peelie across the country examining how to “battle the epidemic of mediocrity that defines so many lives,” in the studio’s own words – and to break out of the mold, leaving lives of purpose and impact.


Man on Wire screening. 3 p.m. Oct. 5, University Hall, Room 170, Augusta State University, 2500 Walton Way
My Playground. 8 p.m. Oct. 6, Old Academy of Richmond County, 540 Telfair St.
I’m Fine, Thanks. 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7, Imperial Theatre, $10 advance


The Westobou Festival, set for Oct. 3-7, spotlights the arts, with performances and exhibitions featuring dance, film, music, spoken word and visual arts. Each day of the festival will focus on a particular discipline but includes events featuring all of the arts. Events are free, unless noted.
