The 2024 edition of the South Georgia Film Festival (SGFF) has received a remarkable number of entries worldwide, comprising student submissions as well as professional films in narrative, documentary, and animation categories. The event, running from March 1 – 3, 2024, features special guest Dan Mirvish, the co-founder of Slamdance Film Festival, alongside a host of other panels run by film experts.
“Film is growing across south Georgia, and we continue to be proud to be a part of it,” said the SGFF Director, Jason Brown. “Bringing filmmakers from across the country to Valdosta to engage our community has been our driving force for all of these years.”
As a unique component in this year’s event, Valdosta State University will host the Timed Hour Film Competition to showcase the efforts of student filmmakers in a compressed time format on Friday, February 16. Students will present their finished films on Monday, February 19, at VSU, and the victorious entry will earn an invitation to the South Georgia Film Festival.
“We are putting on a party for the community,” added Brown. “Showcasing films from across the country and the world, we want to introduce Valdosta to great films, some great filmmakers to Valdosta, and let everyone have a good time. Be a part of the party and show the world what you can do.”
