Atlanta has well established itself within the filmmaking elite for major productions. Every MARVEL franchise goes through Atlanta, including number one shows like Netflix’s Stranger Things. Besides being a vibrant city, known for its musical roots, Atlanta is now a film production hot spot, daring to rival Los Angeles.
And now it will also serve as host for The ATLANTA International Cinefest In November 2021 the GO Independent series of film festivals, as part of the FAME Family, will have a home in the peach state!

Before and after screening films, networking, and enjoying the festival atmosphere, GO on your own adventure in the city ranked the 6th most fun city in the USA!
