Celebrating Film and Spoken Word with North Carolina Roots!
Arts on the Hill will strengthen community ties through films with North Carolina roots and spoken word poetry at Dix Park with the series Play on Words presented by Raleigh Film and Art Festival .
For more than 10 years, the Raleigh Film and Art Festival has prided itself on developing avenues to aid artists in the freedom of expression - crossing paths with a cornucopia of talented individuals in the Triangle and across North Carolina. This partnership with Dix Park will give local, regional, and up-and-coming artists a platform to develop their talents and showcase their work.
