Located in the heart of central Georgia, the Milledgeville Film Festival sets itself apart by creating an intimate atmosphere between other filmmakers and industry professionals, fostering unique and worthwhile networking opportunities you’re unlikely to receive anywhere else.
The industry panels we offer are wide-ranging, providing experienced insight into craft building, crowdfunding, and social issues in the film industry. Past panelist have included actors Scott Takeda (Gone Girl, Everything Must Go) and April Billingsley (The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries), industry Executive John Heinsen (VP of New Media, Producers Guild of America), and writer Jesse Zwick (Parenthood, About Alex). Our keynote speakers have included Academy Award Nominated producers Cathleen Sutherland (Boyhood) and Rachel Winters (Dallas Buyers Club).
The Milledgeville Film Festival is open to seasoned veterans and first-time filmmakers alike, as we curate only the best stories from hundreds of submissions. Our categories include drama, comedy, sci-fi, fantasy, horror and documentary, as well as short and feature length screenwriting competitions, with winners honored at our red carpet award ceremony.
We pride ourselves on the southern hospitality we provide for our filmmakers, which is why so many filmmakers come back each year, while also achieving success at other festivals stateside and abroad.
