You might remember the short videos on Piedmont prairies I wrote about a few months ago. As part of an effort to spread the word beyond the usual suspects, we submitted the short version of the video to the Longleaf Film Festival. The festival highlights short and feature-length documentary and narrative films with a connection to North Carolina. It’s run by the NC Museum of History.

The video is now an official selection of the festival. Unfortunately, it won’t be screened in person (thanks, COVID-19). That said, the festival has been spreading the word through social media, online, and will be doing a virtual screening of all the films this weekend.
