The Atlanta Film Festival Creative Conference is held over a four-day period during the first full week of the festival, and is comprised of a series of 75-minute panels and presentations, ranging in content from moderated Q & A sessions to demonstrations of new storytelling technologies to intensive one-on-one sessions with visiting filmmakers. Our panelists have included representatives from both the Screen Actors and Producers Guilds of America, development executives from nuvoTV, and the Creative Director of the cult hit animated series Archer.
The Creative Conference, formerly known as CINformation, was added to the 2011 Atlanta Film Festival in the hopes of creating an intensive yearly conference environment benefitting not only visiting filmmakers but also aspiring and professional film and video content creators throughout the Southeast. Now heading into its fourth year, we are constantly looking for ways to offer our attendees access to a level of information and opportunities heretofore only known to select festivals and markets. Our goal is to become the preeminent conference for filmmakers and entertainment industry professionals in the southeast.
Our main areas of focus include, but are not limited to:
- Animation and Puppetry
The broad goals of the Atlanta Film Festival Creative Conference:
- Service working content creators and filmmakers
- Support Georgia’s growing film industry
- Fill the void of a major creative conference in the Southeast
- Create an environment that fosters creativity, collaboration and community
Now in its fourth decade, the Atlanta Film Festival—one of only two-dozen Academy Award® qualifying festivals in the U.S.—is the area’s preeminent celebration of cinema. The Atlanta Film Festival is one of the largest and longest-running festivals in the country, welcoming audiences to discover 200 new independent, international, animated, documentary, and short films each year, selected from 3,000 submissions from all over the world. It is also the most distinguished event in its class, recognized as Best Film Festival by Creative Loafing, Sunday Paper, 10Best and Atlanta Magazine.
