Friday, Oct. 2, 7–9 p.m.

Join Longleaf Film Festival for an evening of Official Selection films that speak to current conversations on race and community as well as the art and artistry of the Black experience in North Carolina—and beyond. Watch virtually, as we screen narrative, spoken word, and documentary shorts along with segments from longer films. Register Here!

During the program, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the following Longleaf Official Selection filmmakers, who will speak to the experience of making their films and the meaning they derived from the endeavor:

  • Sade Abiodun, “Godspeed” (2020)
  • Christopher Everett, "Wilmington on Fire" (2015)
  • Maurice Hicks, "A Letter to My Son" (2015)
  • Frederick Murphy, "The Other Side of the Coin: Race, Generations, and Reconciliation" (2020)
  • Trey Gray, "Kindred Kings" (2020)
  • Atinuke Diver and Maracel Guevarra, "Quilt Journeys" (2018)

The evening will be moderated by Lana Garland, who has worked as a creative director, writer, and director/producer in television and film in the US and Europe. Garland is the curator of the Hayti Heritage Film Festival.
