Early entries coming in for 2014 film festival



The Milledgeville Film Festival starts with a three-day weekend schedule.

Georgia College Campus Life Director Tom Miles confirmed the university’s Arts & Sciences auditorium for film screening and Magnolia Ballroom as the gala location.

A Friday night gala running into a full-length feature film screening kicks off the festival. Patrons travel to Arts & Sciences for the premiere around 9 p.m. after dinner and keynote speaker. 

Next, three Saturday morning workshops at Black Box Theatre will provide an educational experience for film buffs. Casting directors, talent agents, producers and different industry professionals will do the one-hour workshops through lunch.

Throughout the festival’s second day, two-hour short film programs starting at 1 p.m. will showcase more than 30 shorts seven to 20 minutes long. Bigger features will run later that evening as well. 

Central State Hospital is tentatively scheduled as the outdoor venue for two Saturday night screenings.

Shorts resume Sunday the 27th with Georgia Shorts at 1 p.m. with two closing feature films ending by 9 p.m. 

Final ceremonies with awards follow.

Early, student and regular ticket prices for the weekend’s events appeal to most budgets. 

Positioning the Milledgeville event into April leaves the city as one of the final local festivals before the international Cannes Film Festival in May. 

Multiple Georgia cities such as Atlanta, Rome, Savannah and Macon run festivals. These events are essential to a filmmaker’s livelihood.

Soon, the website will feature frequently asked questions, deadline, film category and pricing information for the April weekend. Information on festival sponsorship opportunities is also expected soon.
