Longleaf Film Festival 

When: Fri., May 13, 3-7 p.m. and Sat., May 14, 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. 2016



Presented by the N.C. Museum of History, the Longleaf Film Festival seeks to strengthen the bonds between the state's filmmakers and film fans. Now in its second iteration, the festival is slated to present forty-plus films, most but not all of N.C. provenance. If anything unites these disparate works, it's the aim of bringing audiences closer to people and circumstances they would otherwise not know. In this year's rich roster of documentaries, we meet a teen with nonspeaking autism (Voices Unlocked); Durham police officer Lucy Zastrow (That Deputy Sheriff Might Surprise You); the folks behind the state's craft beer scene (Brewconomy); James Henry Jones, the plantation-born farmer who waged a battle against desegregation (Chairman Jones); and luthier extraordinaire Matt Nowicki (Atomic Retro Customs). Along with the docs are narrative and dramatic films, including Jim Haverkamp and Ellen Hemphill's adaptation of Allan Gurganus's "It Had Wings." The festival also helps nurture the next generation of filmmakers by letting young local directors show their stuff, like Silly Honest Kind, a five-minute short by high school director Dylan Crumpler, about a high school director who learns a lesson. —David Klein
