About Thin Line

Thin Line Film is a documentary film festival. We love documentaries because real life is more interesting than fiction! Generally, we believe that documentaries should communicate the Truth.

Thin Line Music is the soundtrack of the festival. It's the perfect mix of styles from national and regional acts on small, intimate stages. A diverse mix awaits festival attendees, ensuring the party doesn't stop until the the early morning.

Thin Line Photo is a competitive, international photography festival. Explore curated photography exhibits and enjoy 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.
