Fairhope Film Festival

Fairhope Film Festival is back (sort of) for our ninth year. We thought “intermission” was over, but it seems not quite yet! Please know that we adjusted this year’s festival because we care about the health of our beloved attendeees, our dedicated staff and volunteers, and the wellbeing of our community at large. Because of circumstances beyond our control, the following changes and precautions will be in effect:

This year we will offer in-person screenings as usual, but many of the films will also be available virtually, streaming online. Please join us in the format of your choice! If you can’t attend in person, we hope you’ll take advantage of our new virtual film festival.

The State of Alabama does not allow businesses and organizations to require proof of vaccination, so we highly encourage wearing masks at all of our indoor events. Please note that we do not own our screening venues, and as such all attendees must adhere to each venue’s own mask policies.

We will be holding temperature checks at all venues except the drive-in. Social Distancing will be practiced. Sanitizing stations will be present at all venues.

We will monitor Fairhope and Alabama COVID Restrictions and CDC public health guidelines; any changes to our practices and protocols will be communicated on our website and by email to ticket holders.

**On November 1st we announce our 2021 Film Selections. Online ticket sales begin that same day.**

ALL TICKETS will be sold ONLINE ONLY for the venue movies, virtual movies, Drive-In, and the Party. There is no physical box office this year.

There will be NO REFUNDS.


We share our love of the silver screen with film screenings throughout the year! Join us for movies, drinks and popcorn at our new theater in the Fairhope Film Festival office for a taste of the Best of the Best between festivals…



Located at the geographic center of America’s Gulf Coast, the quaint, beautiful and historic bayside city of Fairhope, Alabama, is the home of the Fairhope Film Festival. Founded as a nineteenth century utopian experiment, Fairhope has flourished as an arts community for over 100 years.

The five festival venues, within walking distance of each other, will be located in the famous, flower-filled downtown area—considered Carmel by the Bay–convenient to restaurants, hotels, locally owned shops and the town bluffs, which boast sweeping views of the 413 square mile Mobile Bay.

The Fairhope Film Festival is a film lover’s film festival held each year on the second weekend in November, offering participants the opportunity to see world-class award winning films in a unique, picturesque location over a four-day period. [Continue…]
