BEYOND: The Cary Film Festival
offers the sweetest Southern hospitality for veteran and newly-minted creatives to celebrate short films (< 30 min.) and screenplays in all genres. We host stimulating workshops taught by Hollywood screenwriters and all activities take place within walking distance of our historic downtown theater.
In our first three years, we’ve welcomed talented writer-producers to share their skills in our workshops. Artists behind major films: Batman Forever, Pompeii, Encino Man, Drumline, Kiss The Ground, Hoodlum, Deep Cover, A Rage In Harlem, and more. Our friendly festival offers many opportunities for filmmakers and screenwriters to exchange ideas and celebrate the magic of filmmaking with an engaged North Carolina community passionate about discovering unique films.
