About this blog

This is my blog on the arts scene of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding Triangle communities. I'll focus on visual arts and the 2ndFriday Artwalk and other visual art events but that doesn't mean I won't chat about music, literary events, film or anything else in the local creative world. Please email with ideas, links, comments or brickbats. [I have comment moderation on so if you don't see your comment right away that means that I haven't had a chance to approve it yet. Sorry, but the spammers.....]

Keep working on those films!

We had a Carrboro Film Fest committee meeting last night (my first meeting and what a great bunch of folks including neighbors I'd never met) and we're all excited about what will be the best Carrboro Film Festival yet. For you filmmakers out there -- get to work! Early entries pay only $10 but you gotta have it to us by August 28. More info below.

As always, community events of this type need, well, community support. We know that times are tough but any little bit helps. We'll be out beating the bushes for sponsorships and in-kind assistance. The Town gets the ball rolling with their funding but we need broader support. Sponsorships are available at many levels.

YOU can be a part of the 2009 Carrboro Film Festival! The next Carrboro Film Festival will be held on Sunday, November 22, 2009 from 2-7pm. We are now accepting film submissions. The early deadline is August 28, 2009. The late deadline is September 21, 2009. We have reduced submission fees this year and are offering cash prizes! Click here for complete submission information and forms. We can't wait to see YOUR movie!
