As the gentle chill of fall roll over the hills of the North Carolina piedmont, Raleigh is nestled in the shadows of autumn.  The scent of fallen apples, old footballs and the brown of harvested fields lay under the red light of September and October.  With summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer, welcome to the North Carolina Film Awards.
