NARROWSBURG — The 6th Annual Big Eddy Film Festival had sold out shows this past weekend at the Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg. Produced by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance and the Arts Council for Sullivan County, the Big Eddy Film Festival showcases new, independent films from around the world and on Saturday night Sullivan County was front and center.
So B. It, a film adaption of Sullivan resident novelist Sarah Weeks' young adult book of the same name, was pleasantly received by viewers of all ages. The festival marked the premiere of the film in New York State, with a planned limited-release in other states with the upcoming weeks. The film, which was shot in and around the Liberty area, follows a 12 year-old girl who goes on a journey to uncover her family's past.

Durango is a short documentary by two Narrowsburg residents Matt Sukkar and Zac Stuart-Pontier. The documentary follows two teenage boys living in Durango, Colorado right before one of them makes a choice that will change their lives forever.
The night ended with the feature Halfway to Zen, directed by Sullivan County residents John Adams and Toby Poser. The film was produced, written and directed by various members of the Adams' family and follows a broken family in an attempt to piece their lives back together after a ten-year absence.
