Macon Film Festival takes full advantage of multiple gorgeous venues in the city's arts-infused downtown district and features a broad array of film screenings, celebrity guests, and creative workshops as the festival weekend unfolds. More than $13,000 USD in prize money is awarded to the festival's finest creative voices, and participating filmmakers have numerous opportunities to expand their visibility by engaging with local media. Each exhibiting filmmaker can screen his or her film in two of three awe-inspiring, historic venues.
To allow visiting filmmakers the chance to focus on the thrills of the festival experience without the hassles of travel, Macon Film Festival provides discounted lodging, as well as scheduled shuttle trips from Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport to the festival's hotel partners in Macon. Additional shuttle service is available to visitors throughout the festival, making it easy to bounce from venue to venue in comfort.
