Longleaf Film Festival 2017 

When: Fri., May 12, 3-7:30 p.m. and Sat., May 13, 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. 2017

Now in its third year, this juried festival grew out of an N.C. Museum of History exhibit that highlighted the state's rich historical connection to the film industry. The focus continues to be on films with a North Carolina provenance, but the festival embraces the rest of the country and the world, too. The slate is an enticing smorgasbord of sixty short, feature-length, and midsize works, united only by having a good story to tell about the human experience. Documentaries with a distinct N.C. terroir abound, like Tar, Pitch and Turpentine; Taxidermy—A Lost Art?, and Soul City, about a would-be utopia in the heart of KKK territory in the 1970s. Intriguing short films include Nic Beery's My Dumb Face, about a singularly crappy night in a young woman's life, and No Name Maddox, about a young Catholic priest's attempts to help a teenage Charles Manson. Sounds like quite a story, right? —David Klein
