47! of 60 Official Selection films for Longleaf 2017 had a connection to the Tar Heel State.

A free-to-attend film festival that highlights the best short- and feature-length documentary and narrative films in a place that recognizes that filmmakers and film fans DO make history—this is Longleaf. This 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 the free two-day festival in 2017. We screened 60 films, organized four workshops, hosted a private reception for filmmakers, and held our first public wrap party. The online and social media impact also continued to grow, with 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 Museum of History in downtown Raleigh. Help promote the art and craft of filmmaking and the passion of film to fans in Raleigh, the Triangle, and beyond. Help make Longleaf THE capital city’s film festival.
