Atlanta Independent Film Festival returns April 12-21
The film festival is back again to support independent filmmakers
Who says bigger is better? For the last three years, the Atlanta Independent Film Festival has picked its favorite independently made films, previously overlooked by bigger festivals, giving emerging filmmakers a chance to show their stuff. This year’s lineup features a distinct range, from a stoner who “just wants to chill” to a short narrative highlighting the issue of sexual assault, seen through the eyes of a child. Varying in length with features, shorts, and documentaries, the festival awards filmmakers in categories including best actor, best actress, best director, and best sound, to name just a few. Between one and five films will air nightly, and each evening will end with a 15-20 minute Q&A session. Street parking is free and plentiful — an exciting thing in and of itself for Atlanteans.
$15. 7:30 p.m. Thurs.-Sat., April 12-21. Pinch N’ Ouch Theatre, 195 Arizona Ave. www.atlindiefilmfest.com. 404-455-1313.
