The place to be for filmmakers and film-lovers
August 30 – September 2, 2013 Atlanta, GA
What is the Dragon*Con Independent Film Festival? It is a combination of short and feature independent film screenings, panels, celebrity guests, discussions, concerts, contests, and seminars. All that combined with the 35,000+ Dragon*Con attendees creates an extraordinary film event.
There will be plenty to do for anyone who enjoys film. For filmmakers, this is a chance to show your film, meet others in the field, discuss the trials and tribulations of making a film, get some tips, and make some connections. For film-lovers, you can hear some of the masters discuss their projects, watch the films entered in the Film Festival, and then drop by a panel and hear the winning directors/producers discuss their films.
Film screenings and panels will mix, guaranteeing that you won’t have a moment without something film-related to do. I don’t know how you’ll fit in dinner (but don’t worry, there are plenty of places to eat on the premises and near by, along with a con-suite that supplies food 24 hours a day).
For 2013, The Independent Film Festival will run 4 days, Aug. 30 – Sept. 2, within Dragon*Con at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta and Atlanta Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. It is America’s largest annual convention for fans of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, Comics and Art, Games and Computers, Animation, Science, Music, Television and Film. For Film Festival & Track attendees, that means you have access to all the activities and excitement of the convention.
