Fairhope Film Festival

Fairhope Film Festival returns for our NINTH year! We’ve made changes to this year’s festival out of concern for the health of our attendeees, staff, volunteers, and our community. In-person screenings return AND we’ve added a ‘Virtual Festival’ option allowing you to view many of the films online!


Our new ‘Fairhope Film Fans Annual Membership‘ is a fantastic way to support the festival and get the best bang for your buck: it includes 6 films, a Red Carpet Party ticket and entry to all of our Monthly Movies events!


We are so excited to have you join us for another great year of award-winning films! Please visit our 2021 Festival Overview page to learn everything about this year’s fest…

About Our Festival

The Fairhope Film Festival is a film lover’s film festival held each year on the second weekend in November, offering world-class, award winning films in a unique, picturesque location. Fairhope, Alabama is a quaint, beautiful and historic bayside city located on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, in the center of America’s Gulf Coast. Founded as a nineteenth century utopian experiment, Fairhope has flourished as an arts community for over 100 years.

The main festival venues are walking distance of each other around our famous, flower-filled downtown area (“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.
