Carolina Film & Video Festival to be held Feb. 26-March 1

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Greensboro, NC — The 2014 Carolina Film & Video Festival (CFVF) will be held Feb. 26 – March 1 on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This year, CFVF will showcase the arts through the prism of cinema. Four days of live arts performances will highlight film’s collaborative nature.

For the past 36 years, CFVF has offered the community the opportunity to experience the work of talented filmmakers working in narrative, documentary, animation and experimental genres. Our festival is driven by our passion for storytelling in all its forms. We strive to give filmmakers the chance to connect with audiences and one another.

CFVF 2014 will also feature TED Talks-style presentations by creative artists, social networking, and screenings of independent films by established and emerging directors. We encourage North Carolina filmmakers to submit their original works to the 2014 festival.
