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, their filming location, or through their subject.

Longleaf Film Festival, an annual juried festival that highlights the stories that connect us all. We believe that making films is making history. Longleaf Film Festival is sponsored and administered by the North Carolina Museum of History.  Longleaf 2023 will be held Friday, May 12, and Saturday, May 13.
