Now in its tenth year, SPARKcon takes over downtown Raleigh, NC for a weekend in September and brings the best of the local creative community out for an arts celebration like no other! Only at SPARKcon can you attend a film screening, catch local indie bands, take part in a poetry jam, destroy a small city dressed as a giant robot, and enjoy a fire show all in the same day!

FilmSPARK serves as a film festival within a festival. Our goal is share excellent and engaging North Carolina-made films with the public, as well as to raise awareness of the local filmmaking community.

This year, we will be hosting several screening blocks of locally made films in the following categories:

  • Comedy
  • Drama
  • Documentary
  • Kids/Family
  • Genre
  • Experimental

Each category will have an award for Best Film and Audience Choice. The final day of the FilmSPARK, we will have a screening of the winning films where we will announce a Best in Show based on judge and audience rankings.

The film incentives might be gutted, but we are still here, MAKING GREAT FILMS! Let’s show NC what we got!
