The Enfield Riot Film Festival is the first official fundraiser as a new nonprofit entity and will kick-start the fundraising campaign of a 1926 art deco Masonic Theater. We will transform 2 old theaters and classrooms into a full service performing arts center for an economically depressed region of North carolina. In addition, partnering with the Halifax School system and Enfield Middle School, EPAC aims to bring artistic programming to the students of Enfield Middle School.

Are there celebrities? Enfield Riot Film Festival has spoken with several actors and celebrities who have agreed to both showcase some of their film projects as well as attend the event. We are planning a joint program at the Enfield Middle School with these actors to provide motivational and acting instruction to the students. ​ Any film makers or production team that want to travel to our festival are welcome to participate in this incredible teaching opportunity at our Middle School. Please inquire with the Festival Director for details.

Please consider showcasing your film with us. We are a young Film Fest in a very struggling (aka very poor) farming town in East Nc. We want to encourage the arts to a demographic that has not been exposed to anything other than mainstream films and tv shows. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and your films.
And if we can not showcase your film at the event for time constraints we will hold monthly mini film events at our beautiful theater and feature 3-5 films at a time. Your support means the world to us in getting our theater and community revived.

    My film Brick MADNESS played at the Enfield Riot Film Festival and I am elated with the results. The festival director Andrew was helpful and responsive and delivered a top-notch experience. I omitted ratings for Hospitality and Networking as I was unable to attend. Thanks!
