BACK TO BACK SCREENINGS OF INTERNATIONAL FILMS OVER 2 DAYS
In 2018, we’ll mark our eighth year as a N.C. film festival destination. We have grown from a 24-hour event in an education setting to two days of films screened at a beautiful, historic theater. Films selected for screening at Praxis have always been and continue to high quality independent films from across the United States and around the world.
Over the years, Praxis has hosted filmmakers from UNC Wilmington, NC School of the Arts, North Carolina State University, Chapel Hill NC, Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC, and the United Kingdom. We look forward to hosting more filmmakers in 2018!
Praxis got its name from its origins in education. Praxis refers to practical application, and it is a term often paired in opposition to theory. Theory is an idea and praxis is about bringing the idea into reality. Praxis Film Festival celebrates filmmakers who bring ideas into reality on the big screen. During Q&A with the audience, filmmakers attending Praxis share the praxis of how they create their works of art.
