Longleaf Film Festival

 

Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina
Start Month: May


Description

A free-to-attend film festival . . . that highlights the best of state, regional, and international short- and feature-length documentary and narrative films . . . in a place that recognizes filmmakers and film fans do make history—this is Longleaf!
The North Carolina Museum of History is home base for this festival that celebrates the vibrant community of independent film in our state and beyond.
Exploring historic and contemporary stories from the state, the country, and the world through narrative and documentary movies, the 3rd annual Longleaf Film Festival will take place on Friday, May 12, and Saturday, May 13, 2017, at the Museum of History in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Longleaf Film Festival 2017 continues the celebration of storytelling through film that is central to our understanding of the world around us. As a place that connects people, stories, and history, we believe that the North Carolina Museum of History is in a unique position for showcasing films from everywhere. Of course, we hold near and dear those films with a Tar Heel Tie-In.
