Always a great event. Here’s the press release, via Music Video Asheville:

The 11th Annual Music Video Asheville presented by Prestige Subaru Announces Official Selections.

Music Video Asheville enters its 11th year with more live musical performances, appearances by Asheville’s artists and industry leaders and a curated selection of 90 minutes of music video created by Asheville area musicians and filmmakers and played on the big screen at Diana Wortham Theatre.

This event has become near and dear to the hearts of Asheville’s music community as an opportunity to enjoy the hottest and newest talent, to network with the area’s music and film pros and to “strut your stuff” on the red carpet for a top notch crew of photographers.
