Atlanta Film Festival 2017

Atlanta Film Festival 2017

Let’s be real—one of the coolest things about the Atlanta Film Festival is filmmaker presence.
And if we’ve learned one thing in 40 years, it’s that interacting with a filmmaker dramatically magnifies the impact of his or her film. In backing the fundraising project for the AFF, you’ll have a hand in that impact. With this money we fly filmmakers from across the world to our festival and make those important connections between artist and audience. The Atlanta Film Festival is the city's premiere film event—a 10-day showcase for 200+ films and the people who make them. Now turning 41-years-old, the Atlanta Film Festival is one of the longest-running and most distinguished independent film festivals in the world.
