Enfield Performing Arts Center will host a two-day Enfield Riot Film Festival on Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7, highlighting North Carolinian filmmakers, in addition to independent films from directors and producers across the United States.

The festival will show eight feature films and 12 short films.

A VIP reception and fundraising event will be held on October 6 for the restoration of The Lodge, the location of the center and formerly the 1926 Masonic lodge.

The reception will include festival-featured actors and directors. One feature film will be shown.  Scheduled to attend: award-winning, stage and screen actor, writer and director Obba Babatundé; actor, writer and producer P.J. Leonard; actor Sonny Marinelli and actor, writer and producer James Madio.


(The two-day all-access pass including Friday’s VIP gala is $75 and a Saturday-only film pass is $45. Tickets can be ordered starting August 21 by following this link)


The October 7 viewing will include seven feature films and 12 shorts.

The name of the festival honors the events in the town’s history of 1759, where one of the earliest political actions against British tyranny occurred, helping to spark American Independence.

As part of the center’s mission, featured actors will teach a master class on film and theater production at the Enfield STEM Academy, a graded middle school in Enfield hosted by Principal Teicher L. Patterson.

EPAC will soon announce a partnership between the school and the performing arts center.

Feature films shown include: American Bad Boy (2015), The Fallen Faithful, Our Last Sunset Redux (2015) and the short, The Tell-Tale Heart: Sisters (2016).

EPAC’s mission is to provide a broad spectrum of quality entertainment and educational programs that reflect and celebrate the diversity of Enfield and Halifax County, foster understanding and appreciation for the ennobling power of the performing arts and create opportunities for cultural enrichment for people at all economic levels.
