Knox County Public Library’s Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound (TAMIS) and its partners, the East Tennessee Historical Society, Friends of the Library, and the Historic Tennessee Theatre, will host a day of film screenings featuring rare home movies and films focusing on the Smoky Mountains. TAMIS holds the largest and most diverse collection of Smoky Mountain home movie footage in the state of Tennessee, including the collections of Jim Thompson, Jack Huff, the Smoky Mountain Hiking Club, Arrowmont School and others. Part of the East Tennessee History Fair, this event will be unique and exciting for East Tennesseans, as many of these films have never been shown publicly. Highlights include the earliest recorded footage of the Smoky Mountains, home movies of Cades Cove, and clips of Knoxville and the Smokies from the Jim Thompson Collection. Local musicians will provide live music to accompany the silent films.
