We’ve finally reached the year of 2017, which means there will be plenty of film festivals to attend, but no matter how many you visit, none will be more impressive than the Atlanta Film Festival. Known as one of the largest and longest-running film festivals in the United States, the annual Atlanta Film Festival stretches a full week.
Founded in 1976 by what’s now known as the Atlanta Film Festival 365, a nonprofit media arts organization, the Atlanta Film Festival draws in more than 25,000 independent visitors each year. Past honorees have included stars like Burt Reynolds and Spike Lee.
More than 150 films that encompass everything from documentaries to animation to locally produced projects will take the silver screen over the week-long event. Attendees can take advantage of Festival Genius to watch trailers and schedule screenings on their own personal festival calendar.
Those planning to attend can find the Atlanta Film Festival in full swing at the Plaza Theater, Goat Farm Arts Center, and Callanwolde Arts Center. The 41st annual film festival kicks off on March 24th and runs through April 2nd.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
We here at Mercedes-Benz of Buckhead hope to see you at the Atlanta Film Festival later this year!
