About Longleaf Film Festival

Facebook Profile picA free-to-attend film festival . . . that highlights the best of North Carolina, regional, and international short- and feature-length documentary and narrative films . . . and that takes place where people recognize filmmakers and film fans for making history—that is Longleaf!

The North Carolina Museum of History is home base for Longleaf Film Festival, which celebrates the vibrant community of independent film in our state and beyond. We invite you to join us in this place where the stories that connect us all are told and to participate with Longleaf as a filmmaker and/or as a film fan.
