Reception for Filmmakers and Friends

Reception for Filmmakers and Friends
Friday, May 10, 7–8:15 p.m.

Advance ticket sales are closed; a few tickets may be available at the door—thanks for the support!
We hate we cannot accommodate everyone tonight, but remember our Wrap Party on Saturday evening: we’ll have plenty of space there.


Join us for Friday’s opening film blocks (from 3 to 5 p.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m.) in Daniels Auditorium and stay for our reception (at 7 p.m.) to honor Longleaf 2024 Official Selection filmmakers and their supporters—and all friends of Longleaf. Chat one-on-one while enjoying appetizers and drinks—remember: Film, Fun, and Community! Afterwards, watch more films at our evening film block (from 8:30 to 10 p.m.), Movies-N-Moonlight.

Dress is Filmmaker Casual.
