FROM: FULL BLOOM FILM FESTIVAL WEL We graciously welcome you to the 2023 Full C Bloom Film Festival (FBFF) and our beautiful OME MES hometown of Statesville, North Carolina. Beginning in 2015, FBFF has screened over 460 films, hosted countless filmmakers and their friends and families, built lifelong friendships, and established an exciting and unique festival experience year after year. This year we will add 44 films to our total, representing artists from right here in North S Carolina, all over the United States, and 11 A other countries throughout the world. The FBFF Committee and our volunteers work tirelessly throughout the GE year to provide what we consider the very best event in our community. We could not continue the extraordinary endeavor without the amazing support of a host of dedicated sponsors who promote our vision of bringing our festival to life. We cannot thank you enough for being a part of and enjoying this little passion of ours. Please make yourselves at home, enjoy every moment, take in everything that we have to offer, and fall in love with Statesville like we all have. Welcome to the 2023 Full Bloom Film Festival!
