This year’s Opening Night Presentation this is a comedic drama called The Farewell directed by Lulu Wang.

While many of these films require badge access which can be purchased in advance, we would also like people to know that there are a host of five different free events including the highly anticipated premiere screening of Games of Thrones Season 8! Some of these events require an RSVP while others may not. For full details, please visit https://www.atlantafilmfestival.com/schedule-2019. Dress Like A Gent has had the privilege of covering the Atlanta Film Festival for nearly 5 years now and we always are stunned and touched by the amazing work put in to make this event possible. Not to mention, all the films I’ve seen there have been simply amazing, thought provoking, heart-wrenching and honest! Be sure to take advantage of these offerings before these two weeks expire!

The 8th Annual Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival - Buckhead, Atlanta

Just a little over two months away and The Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival returns! On October 1 - 4, 2015 in Buckhead, Atlanta, The Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival (KCFF) will showcase an array of Christian-based films from independent filmmakers that demonstrate and inspire Christian morals and way of life. KCFF screens a mix of short-films, full-length features, documentaries and offers interactive workshops regarding industry trends in faith-based film-making and production. Their aim along with spreading the message of hope and faith through relevant film-making, also is to help to “give back to the Christian community, in hopes to grown local and state-wide congregations.” With the growing number of Christian films in this industry, it is absolutely amazing to have an outlet by which these indie artists and their actors can have their movies celebrated on a larger scale. 

Not only do guests of the KCFF event get an opportunity to learn more about the importance of these new discoveries with Christian film production, but more importantly, this will provide an opportunity to network and build a community of like-minded professionals for greater impact in the world. The lineup for the KCFF week of events includes a Red Carpet Premiere featuring 4 of this year’s movie winner selections, a meet and greet celebrity panel, and networking meet and greets with the official KCFF musicians, gMovies team and more. All events will be held at the Buckhead Embassy Suites.
