2nd Annual Fundraising Campaign to Bring Filmmakers to ATLFF 2015 begins

Filmmakers create connections with an audience simply by making movies, but when we bring those filmmakers to theaters to meet moviegoers in person, magic happens. Become a backer of our annual Kickstarter project (which raises funds for filmmaker travel) and you'll be responsible for some of that magic. With some of the great rewards we've cooked up, you'll get to experience it too. (Even if you don't live in Atlanta.)
