The South Georgia Film Festival is accepting submissions.

Celebrating the creative spirit, the South Georgia Film Festival is accepting submissions showcasing the beauty of the region and its people.

We are seeking submissions in four categories:
– High School Aged Students
– College Students
– Shorts
– Features
Preference will be given to filmmakers from Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina. Winners in the high school and college categories have the opportunity to receive scholarships to Valdosta State University.

Submitted films will be screened on the campus of Valdosta State University March 1 – 3, 2019, in the Student Union Theater. Films will be judged by experts in the region. Awards for each category will be given by regional sponsors along recognition for other notable achievements, such Best Production Design, Best Documentary or Best Acting.

The total running time (everything) must be under 15 minutes in length for the Shorts, High School and College categories. Feature films are not limited based on length. Films that fall outside of those categories can submit to be screened but will not compete.

All participants will be invited to attend the screenings and discussions at the campus of Valdosta State University. Chosen filmmakers will be notified of their film screening by February 25, 2019.

We accept films on a rolling schedule:

Very Early Deadline          –            July 2, 2018
Early Deadline                   –             September 26, 2018

We absolutely will notify filmmakers by February 25, 2019, but intend to do so sooner.
