Mission Statement

Film Fest 919 (FF919) was created to celebrate the best in independent cinema and cuisine by introducing a unique and varied spectrum of international films and filmmakers to the communities of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Triangle region of North Carolina. FF919 works to showcase juried and audience award-winning feature films from festivals all around the world, as well as notable filmmakers that express fresh voices and global perspectives.

FF919 will not only be dedicated to exhibiting these films but also to engage with the culinary arts attributed to the emerging Triangle.  Film Fest 919 aspires to highlight the creativity found in both films and cuisine.
