Our celebrity host for this year's festival is Julianna Guill (pronounced 'gwill' ).  This Winston-Salem, NC native has appeared in such TV shows as "One Tree Hill", "CSI:MIAMI", "How I Met Your Mother" and "Psych"; as well as major motion pictures including, "Altitude", "Friday the 13th" and "Crazy Stupid Love".  Past hosts have included Joe Manganiello (Spiderman, HBOs "True Blood"), Nick Searcy (Runaway Jury, FXs "Justified", Nina Ripeta (One Tree Hill), Ravi Patel (Transformers, Past Life), Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies, Piranha 3D).

The festival will kick off on Thursday, April 26th with the Regional Showcase. This extremely popular event features short films by local and regional filmmakers and truly celebrates filmmaking in the Cape Fear area.
The festival is capped off on Sunday, April 29th with the 2012 Wilmington Film Awards.  Since it's beginning, CFIFF has awarded the top films of the festival with trophies, prizes and cash.  Prizes are awarded in 10 different categories including Best Local Film.   Since 2000, the Cape Fear Independent Film Network has awarded over $25,000 in prizes and production assistance to local filmmakers.   To date, it is the only North Carolina film festival that awards cash prizes.

In 2006, CFIFN created the Creative Spirit Award in honor of local radio DJ and actor Wayne Bradley. Wayne was a dynamic media personality in the Wilmington area, involved in TV, radio and Independent movies and he was a big supporter of the CFI: Film Festival.  This award is given to one individual who exemplifies a fierce creative spirit partnered with a sense of community.   Finalists for the Creative Spirit Award will be announced in March.
