- Reception for Filmmakers and Friends
Between our opening film block and our evening Movies-N-Moonlight film block stick around and enjoy the Longleaf community of Official Selection filmmakers, their friends, and all our supporters. Enjoy appetizers and drinks, and opportunities to network and learn! Tickets are required for entry to the reception. Friday, May 13, 6:15–8:15 p.m.
- Movies-N-Moonlight, our Friday evening, outdoor screen block!
Like all our film blocks, this one is free; but it’s also outside, bathed in moonlight! Let everyone know you’re coming—some seating will be provided, or bring your own as a guarantee. Note: While the independent films screened are not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), most would fall within the PG-13 range. Friday, May 13, 8:30–10 p.m.
- Film Secrets of the State Archives, our morning workshop for filmmakers and film fans, will reveal some of the state’s archived film gems and how these films can provide inspiration for filmmakers, with state archivist Vann Evans and filmmaker and film historian Marsha Gordon.
This session is free, but registration is required; space is limited. Saturday, May 14, 11 a.m. to noon.
- Our Strange New Land: Narrative Movie Sets in the American South, our afternoon session for filmmakers and film fans, during which a photographer and filmmaker discuss their craft, their collaboration on set, and a new book, with Margaret Sartor, about narrative filmmaking in the South.
This session is free, but registration is required; space is limited. Saturday, May 14, 2–3 p.m.
- Awards Ceremony
Be here to congratulate all winners Longleaf as cash prizes and our signature tiles are awarded in multiple categories. Applaud at will. The ceremony is free and open to the public; space is limited. Saturday, May 14, following the final film block in Daniels Auditorium.
- Wrap Party!
That’s a wrap! This is a FREE public reception for friends, family members, and other supporters of filmmakers and Longleaf in the Voodoo Room event space at the Big Easy—just a few blocks from the Museum of History, at 222 Fayetteville Street. Your favorite beverage is on you; munchies are on Longleaf. All donations made will support Longleaf 2023! Let everyone know you’re coming. Saturday, May 14, following the awards ceremony.
Spend Saturday with Longleaf, and
don’t worry about Saturday lunch:
We’ll have Cary catering company’s Designer Eats food truck parked outside from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.—
Their options include southern cooked seafood and “some of the best sides on the East Coast”!
