Be a Sponsor!


Join us in promoting the art and craft of filmmaking and the passion of film to fans in Raleigh, the Triangle, and beyond.  With your help—as a contributor (or use the PayPal button in the sidebar), as a sponsor, or as an in-kind donor—we will keep Longleaf Film Festival free to attend.

Contact co-organizer sally.bloom@ncdcr.gov to discuss how you or your business can become a part of the Longleaf community.

The 60 Official Selection films for 2017 included 47 that had a connection to the Tar Heel State.

Longleaf is a two-day free-to-attend film festival that highlights the best short- and feature-length documentary and narrative films in a place that recognizes filmmakers and film fans DO make history. 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, which celebrates the vibrant community of indepen­dent film in our state and beyond. We invite you to sponsor Longleaf and help us share these films, in this place that tells the stories that connect us all.

Entering its fourth year, Longleaf continues to grow, with more than 900 people attending in 2017. Among our accomplishments this year, we

  • screened 60 films,
  • organized four workshops,
  • hosted a private reception for filmmakers, and
  • held our first public wrap party.

The festival's online and social media impact also continued to grow, with increased exposure on the festival’s website, existing Facebook and Instagram accounts, and a new Twitter account.

The next Longleaf Film Festival will be held May 11 and 12, 2018, at the North Carolina Museum of History in downtown Raleigh. Help make Longleaf THE capital city’s film festival.
