The Georgia Film Festival is a two-day film festival hosted by the University of North Georgia on its Gainesville campus. GFF is a festival built to celebrate filmmakers & works made in the state of Georgia and in the southeast. Attendees get to see independent films from Georgia and surrounding states and learn from industry experts through panels and workshops. Filmmakers get to showcase their work and build relationships. Students who contribute to hosting the event develop a wide range of leadership and organizational skills. The Georgia Film Festival also helps to increase the visibility of the University, the Communication, Media & Journalism Department, and the Georgia film community.
The Georgia Film Festival (GFF) accepts films in all genres. Submissions are accepted via secure, online screeners (Vimeo preferred). Participants must label all work clearly with your name, contact information, exhibition format and running time. Projection quality prints of content will be requested upon acceptance into the festival.
Final programming decisions will be made by a screening committee comprised of students and faculty, shortly after the final decision deadline. All entrants will be notified via FilmFreeway. Please make sure to read all of the festival rules as well as the terms and conditions.
