Now celebrating its twefth year, The Carrboro Film Festival has grown to become the premiere festival in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. Featuring world class films of every length and genre, CFF is known for packed houses and standing ovations.
This two day celebration of Film ART, NOT Film Business, is recognized by filmmakers the world over as a place to immerse themselves with like minded Film creators, creators of art in cinema. Audiences respond positively to the short films, the feature films, the narrative’s documentaries, the experimental and every film genre in between. The Carrboro Film Festival is eclectic and powerful, humorous and moving.
The Festival organizers take great pains to present the films in the best way possible, huge screens and state of the art sound systems. Presentation is paramount for us. Beginning in 2006, and now in it’s 12th year, The Carrboro Film Festival is honored to screen films from around the region and around the world.
“All film genres are represented, including documentaries, dramas, comedies, animations, horror films, music videos, and love stories,” says Carrboro Film Festival co-founder Nic Beery. “Out of hundreds of entries, only about 45 films will be shown during the festival weekend. So far, we have officially received more film submissions than any other year for this year’s Carrboro Film Festival! And the quality of the films is outstanding!”
In addition to two days of wonderful films, there will be parties, networking opportunities, and more surprises throughout the Film Fest weekend. After the final film is shown, a variety of awards will be presented, including Best Narrative Feature, Best Narrative Short and Best Documentary. Being the creative town that Carrboro is, the unique trophies presented to winners are made by Mike Roig, renowned Carrboro sculptor.
