The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C22H19FN2O, contains two independent molecules. The planar benzimidazole ring systems are oriented with respect to the phenyl/fluorobenzene rings at dihedral angles of 31.10 (4)/45.17 (5) and 45.52 (5)/68.63 (5)°, respectively, for the two molecules. In the crystal structure, intermolecular C—H⋯N and intermolecular C—H⋯N and C—H⋯F hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a three-dimensional network. There are C—H⋯π contacts between the benzimidazole and fluorobenzene rings and a π–π contact between the benzimidazole and phenyl ring systems [centroid–centroid distance = 4.575 (1) Å].
