Description

Now approaching its 44th year, the Academy Award®-qualifying Atlanta Film Festival (ATLFF) is one of the largest and longest-running festivals in the country. Every spring our 11-day festival presents local and international works selected from over 8,400 submissions and representing 50+ countries. Recent festivals have seen audiences of over 28,000 film-lovers joining 300+ attending filmmakers in support of works that push the boundaries of independent cinema.

Objective

The Atlanta Film Festival showcases the work of both emerging and established artists. ATLFF actively strives to be an inclusive showcase with spotlights on filmmakers of color, LGBTQ+ films (Pink Peach), women filmmakers (New Mavericks), family-friendly programming, Food on Film and experimental subjects and themes. In 2019, 50% of the program was directed by women and 43% by filmmakers of color. Historically, ATLFF’s program is comprised of approximately 85% - 95% submissions.
