The 2020 ME Film Festival will be a virtual festival! The virtual format will screen about one third of the selections, while the majority of the 2020 selections will be viewed at the 2021 ME Film Festival.
The festival received 1,280 submissions from more than 40 countries this year. ME Film Festival officials decided to hold the festival virtually, due to the closure of many international borders.
The ME Film Festival in Milledgeville showcases filmmaking talents. Whether you're a creator or avid moviegoer, the ME Film Festival sets itself apart by creating an intimate atmosphere between other filmmakers and industry professionals.
Past guests and panelists have included actors Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr, Scott Takeda (Gone Girl, Everything Must Go) and April Billingsley (The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries), industry Executive John Heinsen (VP of New Media, Producers Guild of America), and writer Jesse Zwick (Parenthood, About Alex). Keynote speakers have included Academy Award Nominated producers Cathleen Sutherland (Boyhood) and Rachel Winters (Dallas Buyers Club).
