Fayetteville Film Festival will be presenting their 12th Annual event in November of this year and it’s not too late to submit your film.

Filmmakers, get your films in before the deadline and the organization is also seeking volunteer jurors from the community. So, if you’re interested in watching some movies and giving your opinions on them, we have contact information on our website.

The next patio concert is planned for Wednesday, May nineteenth. Make plans now to attend.
