About the Festival

Now celebrating its eleventh 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.

In addition to two days of wonderful films, parties, workshops, and networking opportunities are offered throughout the fest weekend. Take a peak at the line up!
