  • About Us

    We are a group of committed Film and Video Production students at the University of West Georgia hosting our 2nd Annual southeastern regional undergraduate film festival in Carrollton, GA.  

    We created this festival for undergraduate filmmakers of the Southeast U.S. to come together and celebrate the art of student-produced motion pictures. Our mission is to ignite creativity and passion for cinema among college filmmakers and the local community alike by establishing a regional platform showcasing outstanding student films and screenplays, putting Southeast Students on the map!
