The Carrboro Film Festival was started in 2006 by Carrboro Arts Committee members Jackie Helvey and Nic Beery, with support from Board of Aldermen and the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department. Together with a group of dedicated volunteers, they pulled together the first festival in a matter of months.
The idea behind the Carrboro Film Festival is to promote local area shorts films that are twenty minutes or less. The first year, the response was incredible, with nearly 100 entires. From those, a day filled with fabulous films was created, and that tradition has continued over the years.
In 2014, the Festival continues to grow and thrive as we again offer two days, accepting submissions of any lengths, from across the entire state of of North Carolina and around the world.
Our Carrboro Film Festival logo was created by local artist Susan Siplon.
