ATLFilmParty: Local Film Competition in Atlanta, Georgia | Transforming ATL's Film Industry
ATLFilmParty, LLC is a dynamic local film competition in Atlanta, Georgia, dedicated to fostering a vibrant and supportive film community. Our primary objective is to drive positive transformation within the ATL film industry.
Filmmakers interested in participating in the ATLFilmParty must either hail from or have a base in Atlanta, Georgia. This requirement ensures that the competition remains rooted in the local talent and showcases the immense creativity within our community.
During each cycle, a carefully selected seasonal jury comprising seasoned film industry professionals will meticulously review the submissions and curate a captivating selection of 3-8 top films. These exceptional works will be featured at our highly anticipated event, where they will be presented in a captivating loop and screened at a prominent venue located inside the perimeter (ITP).
As an attendee of the ATLFilmParty, you will have the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a captivating cinematic experience. Upon arrival, each guest will receive an individual ballot, enabling them to cast their vote for their favorite film after enjoying the looped screenings throughout the evening.
To further support and empower filmmakers, this round’s presenting sponsor JUNK M3D!A generously provides a $500 grant along with mentorship to the winner of the night. As the event unfolds from 8 PM until late into the night, anticipation builds until the climactic moment at 12 AM when our host, Brooke "B" Sonenreich, announces the victorious filmmaker, based on the meticulously counted ballots.
