Longleaf Film Festival

A free-to-attend festival that highlights the best of independent film in a place that strives to tell the stories that connect us all—this is Longleaf.

Our weekend festival screens films that demonstrate a Tar Heel State connection, through the people involved in making them, their filming location, or through their subject. The North Carolina Museum of History serves as home base for Longleaf Film Festival.

Make plans now to join us at the museum for the 10th anniversary of Longleaf! Plan to see dozens of films—narrative and documentary shorts and features, animated films, music videos, and more! Plus, enjoy Movies-N-Moonlight, workshops, socials, and the presentation of awards. And, share your work with us! Check out LongleafFilmFestival.com for all the festival details. Follow us @LongleafFilmFestival on Facebook and Instagram and @LongleafFF on X (formerly Twitter). Making films is making history!
