We are very excited for our brothers and sisters just south of ATL to kick-off their 10th annual film festival!
The Macon Film Festival moved their annual film celebration from February to July this year, joining forces with the Bragg Jam Music Festival to form an even larger, 10-day event for the city. The four-day film festival takes place in downtown Macon from July 16-19, making use of Macon's historic cinemas, beautiful streets and elegant party venues.
The Macon Film Festival has long been a proponent of both Georgia-made film and Southern film. Both Southern documentaries and music documentaries receive special attention in Macon, representing the city's musical heritage.
This year's opening night film is "Mavis," from director Jessica Edwards, which premiered at SXSW earlier this year. Georgia film icon Burt Reynolds is scheduled to attend, with special screenings of his films "Deliverance" and "Sharky's Machine" set to play at the Cox Capital Theatre.
Several films from ATLFF will screen in Macon, including features "Divided Time," "Frame by Frame," "Old South" and "Wildlike" and short films "The Bravest the Boldest" and "Thundercluck: Chicken of Thor."
