Pembroke, NC – The 4th Annual Lumbee Film Festival, originally slated for later this month, is being moved to the spring of 2022. The decision comes after recent spikes in COVID-19 cases in the county and across the state.
“It saddened us to make this decision, however the lineup warranted a full opportunity to be experienced. We thought about going virtual, but Zoom fatigue is real. We will be delighted to gather in the spring to watch and celebrate these great films and to rock out with Charly Lowry,” said Kim Pevia, director of the Lumbee Film Festival.
The full festival lineup was already announced, and organizers plan to keep the same lineup including screenings of RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World and The Transcenders as well as an opening night performance from NC musician Charly Lowry and three shorts
blocks packed with films from Indigenous directors from the United States and Canada.
The Lumbee Film Festival is a partnership between the N.C. Museum of Art, Lumbee Tribe of NC, Cucalorus Film Foundation, ARRAY, SouthArts and the NC Arts Council.
