Welcome to The Golden Hour Film Festival, your haven for independent filmmaking nestled in the picturesque foothills of North Carolina. Born from the experiences of seasoned filmmakers, our festival seeks to redefine the traditional film festival paradigm. 


Emphasizing inclusivity, we accommodate filmmakers of all ages and experience levels. We understand the constraints of emerging artists and believe that creativity flourishes when given a fair chance. Our awards and categories recognize the effort of every participant, making The Golden Hour Film Festival a beacon for diverse talent.


More than just a festival, The Golden Hour Film Festival is a community. It's a testament to resilience and ingenuity, designed for dedicated filmmakers ready to let their work shine. Regardless of the outcome, each film is a stepping stone towards perfection, and we're here to support you every step of the way.


The Golden Hour Film Festival changes the narrative for filmmakers often halted by insufficient support. We offer an environment thriving with like-minded creatives, encouraging you to learn, grow, and above all, keep filming. At The Golden Hour Film Festival,  we don't just showcase films; we foster talent and ignite the flame of creativity.


“Individually we are one drop, Together we are an ocean.”
