Thin Line is a film, music, and photography festival held over five days in Denton. Thin Line delivers an engaging program of high quality documentary films, world-class music, and a diverse selection of photography.

Thin Line Film is all about documentaries because real life is indeed more interesting (and more powerful) than fiction; and because the documentary genre has much more depth than our festival could ever hope to capture in a single year, but we try. We screen all types of documentaries including hybrid forms such as mockumentaries, docudramas, animated docs, docu-comedies, and if you look closely you may even find a docufiction.

Thin Line Music is the soundtrack of the festival. It's the perfect mix of styles giving all our guests an ideal way to wrap up the evening. It's quintessential Denton: national and regional acts on small, intimate stages. A diverse mix of genres awaits festival attendees ensuring the party doesn't stop until the early morning.

Thin Line Photo explores scores of curated print and digitally-exhibited photographs at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center as well as a smaller gallery in Golden Triangle Mall (across from Barnes & Noble). All exhibits are completely free and open to the public. Other photo events include free online-only contests and immersive photography workshops.
