The Hollywood of the South is calling you! Georgia has become a hub for filmmaking. And with access to smartphones, it is quickly becoming easier to film, edit and share films with each other. Anyone can participate in the creative experience of making a short film. For the past three years, the Georgia Thespian Film Festival provided an opportunity for students to showcase their student-produced films, have professionals in the film industry evaluate and give feedback on those films, and participate in an interactive talkback session.
To participate, troupes may submit up to three short films between 3-10 minutes long. The films will then be viewed and evaluated by a panel of professionals, and a showcase of films will be curated for viewing during the conference. Because of the limited time of the event, some submissions will not be showcased at the conference. However, each film submitted will receive individual feedback whether it is showcased or not.
