The Fairhope Film Festival

Fairhope Film Festival is back (sort of) in a modified version. Please join us in the format of your choice. We thought “intermission” was over, but it seems not quite yet. Please know that Fairhope Film Festival cares about your health. Because of circumstances beyond our control, the following changes and precautions will be in effect during the Fairhope Film Festival.

This year, we will show movies onscreen as usual and many of them will also be available virtually. If you cannot attend in person, we hope you will take advantage of our new virtual Film Festival.

ALL TICKETS will be sold ONLINE ONLY for the venue movies, the virtual movies, the Drive-In, and the Party.

There will be NO REFUNDS.

Proof of vaccination will be required.

With the exception of the Drive-In Event, guests entering ticketed events will need to show a vaccination card or a letter from a doctor stating you cannot take a vaccine.  

Temperature checks will be conducted at venues, except the drive-in.

Masks are encouraged, but not mandatory.

Social Distancing will be practiced.

Sanitizing stations will be present at all venues.

The Fairhope Film Festival retains the right to decline entry into a film screening or event, without a refund, for anyone who refuses to comply with these safety guidelines. By attending the Fairhope Film Festival, attendees voluntarily assume all personal risks related to Covid 19.

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.


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…]
