The Carrboro Film Festival was started in 2006 by Carrboro Arts Committee members Jackie Helvey and Nic Beery, with support from Board of Aldermen and the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department.

Now in its 14th year, the festival continues to grow and thrive as we again offer two days, accepting submissions of any length from across the state of North Carolina and around the world.
