It's that time of year, when red carpets roll out and superstars do their best to impress. It's award season, and Hollywood's gearing up for the godfather of award shows: the Oscars. But amidst the glamour of the Golden Globes, the SAGs and the Emmys, lesser known shows are happening over the country in celebration of the films and filmmakers that haven't yet hit the big time. We've compiled a list of some of the best small film festivals around the country – from the action-packed ActionFest in Asheville, NC, to the spooky All Souls Fest in Tuscon, AZ – to give you a taste of what goes on outside of Hollywood.
