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 or through their subject. The North Carolina Museum of History serves as home base for Longleaf Film Festival.
Join our community of filmmakers and film fans with the events and programs of this year’s festival. Due to COVID-19 safety requirements, they will be virtual. Watch as we live stream the Awards and Prizes on April 30, BYOP (Bring Your Own Popcorn) to our One Last (Virtual) Viewing Event to see dozens of films, and engage with filmmakers and film experts in our festival panel, workshop, and Q&A session with filmmakers. Like all Longleaf events and programs, these are free to attend; advance registration required for most. Details and registration information are here!
