A couple of North Carolina-themed films have picked up some nice recognition, acceptance into the bluegrass film festival portion of this fall’s World of Bluegrass.

Among the nine films in the field are “The Last Barn Dance” by former News & Observer photojournalists Ted Richardson and Jason Arthurs; and “David Holt’s State of Music” by Deni McIntyre, from the UNC-TV series starring the former Doc Watson sideman.

All nine films will be shown multiple times Oct. 2-3 during the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass. Screenings will be at the Raleigh Convention Center, free and open to the public.
