Now in its eleventh year, The Carrboro Film Festival will feature many shorts, and nine features.

Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased online at or at the ArtsCenter box office, located at 300-G E Main Street, Carrboro NC. Tickets are $15 for a full day pass, or $20 for a two-day festival pass.

Festival Director Nic Beery had this to say,

“Our local features include Vinyl Dinosaurs, about the death of vinyl records and a teenager’s serach for them and more, and features IndyWeek writer, Lisa Sorg. We also have Mango Dreams, a local film made in India and making its Triangle debut.

“Our National features include the Austin comedy, Kopy Kings, featuring indie musician Bob Schneider. And Happy, a film about gay artist Leonard Zimmerman that loses his partner and turns grief into spreading happiness.”

The film schedule is also online at All films will be screened at the Carrboro’s ArtsCenter.

An opening party will be held at The Station, 201 E Main Street, Carrboro NC the evening of Saturday, November 19, 2016.

According to the film festival website:

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.

In addition to two days of wonderful films, we have parties, workshops and networking opportunities throughout the fest weekend.

This year’s festival has “an embarrassment of film riches,” many from right here in the triangle. Each and every film deserves recognition. Check out the Carrboro Film Festival’s blog for interviews with this year’s filmmakers about their films. It’s a great way to dig deeper into these indie gems.
