In accordance with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 117, and to help limit the spread of COVID-19, the North Carolina Museum of History suspended public operations beginning March 17; all events and programs were subsequently cancelled, through May 31, 2020—and that includes this year’s Longleaf Film Festival.
We are disappointed. saddened. frustrated. Yet resigned, to doing what’s best for our community of filmmakers and film fans. But, while the event is cancelled, the Community continues. We WILL be announcing Longleaf 2020 Official Selections, as scheduled, on April 9, 2020, in a live-stream program at 4 p.m. We WILL be presenting awards and prizes in another live-stream program on April 24, 2020 (time to be determined).
