Said IMFF Co-founder Jan Johnson:  “With tremendous support from the City of Fayetteville we are able to hold our screening at Segra to offer a safe and fun place to watch a great film. We look forward to welcoming everyone to our own downtown stadium to kick off the festival.”

The film festival includes two in-person events and virtual (online) film screenings spanning multiple days:

  • October 7, 2021 @ 7pm: Free Family Film Night @ Segra Stadium (in-person)
  • October 8 @ 7pm: Opening Night Film @Segra Stadium  (in-person)
  • October 9-15:  80+ films screened in Virtual Cinemas (online)

To see the films planned in each of the virtual cinemas, visit www.indigomoonfilmfestival.com/full-schedule-of-films.

Free IMFF masks will be available at Segra Stadium

IMFF is committed to spreading love and goodwill, not germs, so each attendee will receive a free IMFF face mask. IMFF will follow the NC Covid-19 protocol, so everyone should social distance and must be masked while in Segra Stadium unless they are eating and drinking.

Indigo Moon Film Festival was started in 2015 to fill a need for this under-represented cultural art in our region.  With a firm belief that Film Inspires Change, IMFF is delighted to be presenting films from diverse voices in an effort to foster understanding and positive change.

Indigo Moon Film Festival is supported in part by the Arts Council in part by contributions from businesses and individuals and through grants from the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County, and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources. Indigo Moon is also the beneficiary of the Terri Union and Carlos Zukowski Endowment for the Arts of Cumberland Community Foundation
