Bigfoot invades the Ned Smith center for Nature and Art, located at 176 Water Company Road in Millersburg, PA- in the form of numerous films with themes involving the infamous urban legend. Coined as the Bigfoot Film Festival, and sponsored by Harrisburg's very own progressive and popular film cooperative, Moviate the showcase will cover two days, starting at 6:00pm on January 29 and ending Jan.31st it will include a lecture (Bigfoot in Film) by local filmmaker Jim Hollenbaugh. Also slated, the screening of two films: Yolanda and The Hairy Horror, directed by George Kuchar, the twin brother of indie cinema giant Mike Kuchar.

On January 30th watch the film Capture of Bigfoot, and then stick around for a lecture with Eric Altman-the President of the Bigfoot Society-which also includes a guided walk on one of the Ned Smith Center's trails. Other lectures include "Boggy Creek, Bigfoot and Beyond" conducted by Crypto-zoologist Loren Coleman. Following the lecture the film Legend of Boggy Creek will show.

The last day, January 31st is family day. Wear your best Bigfoot costume, join in the fun family activities such as: Animal  Tracks, and take in the last lecture of the festival: Modern Mountain Lions in Pennsylvania being conducted by the Patriot-News' http://pennlive.comOutdoor Writer Marcus Schneck. To end the festival on a humorous note the last film will be Harry and the Hendersons.

 So be sure to start your film festival hunt off on the right foot. (Really, no pun intended)
