FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Milledgeville, GA- The 11th round of BOOSTed winners have been announced! This round there were 6 applications received. The small monetary donation from many creates the ability to provide larger grants to these business owners. This infusion of capital into our local community is a great way to help ourselves.

Congrats to the Round 11 BOOST winners; Milledgeville Film Festival and Old Capital Museum. 

BOOST Film Festival

Both the Milledgeville Film Festival and the Old Capital Museum were awarded $1000. The Milledgeville Film Festival is an international filmmaker's event held annually in Milledgeville-Baldwin County. The festival creates engagement in the region by providing job training, workshop sessions and professional networking for economic impact in the growing Georgia film making industry.

This exciting international filmmaker’s showcase features over 460 submissions from more than 40 countries around the world, blending films, panels, and industry into one action-packed event. The BOOST grant allowed the film festival to purchase a new red carpet that they will showcase at the 5th annual event.

BOOST Old Capitol Museum

Georgia’s Old Capital Museum (GOCM) is of regional history that has recently relocated the museum offices and educational program to “The Just Imagine Cottage” on Central State Hospital (CSH) campus.
