Carrboro Film Festival 

When: Sat., Nov. 21, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 22, 12:45-7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $15-$20




Now in its 10th year, the Carrboro Film Festival has grown in its reach while maintaining its tradition of showing short works, mostly by area filmmakers, which vary widely in tone, genre, length and approach. Sharing screen space over two days are films ranging from The Last Barn Dance, a documentary about an Alamance County milk farmer trying to preserve both a family tradition and his livelihood, and Birthday, the fictional story of a young wife re-encountering her wounded Marine husband. There's also lighter fare, like the twisted fantasy-romance "American Sock." In addition to screening 32 films, the festival offers workshops, such as one by director Rob Underhill on how to navigate film festivals. That may be a little too insider-ish for the lay attendee, but on Saturday night, acclaimed film editor Michael R. Miller, one of two guest speakers, will drop stories about working with Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and the Coen brothers. 10 a.m.–9 p.m. Sat.; 12:45–7:30 p.m. Sun.,

$15–$20, 300 E. Main St., Carrboro, —David Klein
