Film Festival

Film Festival

Milledgeville rolls out the red carpet each April for the Milledgeville Film Festival, a five day movie explosion in the heart of Georgia's Lake Country. Features and shorts are welcomed in a contest that mixes our city's history and new filmmakers with our Oliver Hardy Comedy Award and Central State Hospital horror screening. Compete, chat, and celebrate with other filmmakers in Milledgeville's iconic buildings with our Magnolia Ballroom Gala and renovated Campus Theatre Workshops. 

Not a film maker but love the movies, you are welcome to come to screenings, panels and workshops offered throughout the five days.  We explore the building excitement of the festivities on our blog. 

Located near, GCSU (Georgia's only public liberal arts university) and Historic Downtown, the festival provides a relaxing space for fast-paced artists. Whether you're a creator or avid moviegoer, we hope to see you in Milledgeville, where we're crazy about film!  For more information on the festival, visit the Milledgeville Film Festival website.
