Full Bloom Film Festival @ Downtown Statesville
Sep 13 – Sep 15 all-day

The fourth annual Full Bloom Film Festival will take place this year from September 13th through September 15th in and around Historic Downtown Statesville. FBFF is a 3-day film festival dedicated to bringing quality, diverse films from around the world. You will have the chance to walk down the red carpet for premiere events, attend panel discussions, and celebrate with filmmakers and VIP’s at parties all weekend! In addition to supporting independent filmmakers, FBFF aims to shed light on our local and global communities. Some films will make you laugh, some may make you cry–but either way, these films will stay with you long after they’re done.

To attend, simply pre-purchase a custom badge as a VIP, Festival Pass, Friday/Saturday Day Pass, or a single screening ticket. Or, swing by during the film festival and buy a single screening ticket at the door!

The Festival is organized by a committed group of area business leaders, film enthusiasts and volunteers. The Festival is a collaborative effort supported by:
-Iredell County Arts Council
-City of Statesville
-Iredell-Statesville Schools
-Mitchell Community College
-Statesville Chamber of Commerce
-Statesville Recreation and Parks Department
