Film, Fun, and Community!

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.

We are open for submissions! Please share your indie film with us.

Longleaf 2021 was (virtual) fun! We are grateful to our 2021 Official Selection films and award winners, who shared their work with film fans during our online One Last (Virtual) Viewing Event—Thank you all for following and supporting Longleaf 2021.
