ATLFF has long been a part of a select few Academy Award® qualifying film festivals, as only 37 film festivals in the U.S. currently hold Oscar qualifying eligibility. With a recent announcement from the Academy, we are proud to announce that another ATLFF film category—Documentary Short—now qualifies for Academy Awards® consideration.
This week, ATLFF '14 animated selection "Confusion Through Sand" premiered on PBS as part of ITVS' Independent Lens series. Now, the filmmakers are offering it up on Vimeo free of charge!
January – when we look back on the previous year and make borderline-obsessive lists of things that were the best and worst of the last twelve months. Not wanting to be left out, we asked ATLFF film programmers Kristy Breneman (Programming Director) and Christina Humphrey (Programmer - Shorts) to share their favorite movie watching experiences of 2014.
In preparation for the 2015 Atlanta Film Festival and our upcoming Volunteer Orientations, we'd like to invite you to our pre-festival Volunteer Mixer! Come enjoy some light hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, mingle with volunteers from previous festivals, and discover what volunteering for the festival is all about!
