Vintage Auto Film Exhibition comes to Coligny

Around Town

Automotive Film festivalThe bond between drivers and their cars inspires the Vintage Auto Film Exhibition Nov. 1 at Coligny plaza.

The evening begins with a red-carpet reception with light appetizers and cocktails from 6-7 p.m., giving visitors opportunity to enjoy the rare and vintage automobiles on display. At 7 p.m., the curtain goes up on a short film directed by the festival’s founder, Guy Smith. “Running with Pop” showcases the 1967 Camaro which served as the unofficial “mascot” of the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance during its early years.

Smith launched the Vintage Auto Film Exhibition two years ago as a tie-in even to the motoring festival.

“Cars and motion pictures have never known a time without each other; they were born of the same era and came into their own hand-in-hand,” he said.
