2016 Longleaf Film Festival, May 14, 2016
Concession sales, contributions, in-kind donations, and sponsor support continue to keep Longleaf Film Festival free for viewers in attendance.  Thank you!

While the North Carolina Museum of History has long explored stories from the state’s past through exhibits and programs, we also recognize that making films is making history. And that means Longleaf Film Festival is a great fit!  Longleaf Film Festival explores both historical and contemporary stories in film—from across the state and around the globe—that are central to our understanding of the world around us.

In its second year, Longleaf experienced 100 percent growth in attendance (2016 over 2015), with about 900 people attending the free two-day festival. In addition, the online and social media impact of the event was huge, with combined engagement on the festival’s Facebook and Instagram presence and a new, free-standing website totaling more than 45,000 hits.

The museum’s third annual Longleaf Film Festival in May 2017 will continue to celebrate stories told through the art of narrative and documentary independent movies with three screening rooms, workshops and socials, and free popcorn! Help promote the art and craft of filmmaking and the passion of film to fans in Raleigh, the Triangle, and beyond by becoming a sponsor or an in-kind donor. Let’s make this festival THE film festival of our capital city.
