2020 is a year unlike any other - the same applies to this year’s fall festival which will be held both online and via drive-in. While we’re unable to celebrate film together in-person, we hope you’ll enjoy what we do from anywhere in the world. This year we have the opportunity to offer more access, increase inclusivity and highly encourage you to host your own Breck Film Fest experience wherever you are - go for a hike, paddle at sunrise, and tune in for an all-star lineup of film!

Drive-In Movie! Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President

Join us for opening night of our 2020 film festival, a drive-in documentary film: Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President. Escape into the late 70's with this part music / part political documentary film.

When Jimmy Carter was just a kid in south Georgia, he loved gospel music so much that he didn’t need the hymn book to sing along. As it turned out, this lifelong passion for music gave him an unexpected edge as a presidential candidate: through folk, soul, jazz, and rock ‘n’ roll, Carter tapped into a force that transcended racial and generational divides, and often party lines. And after the disillusionment of the Watergate era, the musicians sensed that Carter wasn’t faking it; the likes of Bob Dylan, the Allman Brothers, and Willie Nelson even forged friendships.
