The Macon Film Festival, funded in part by a generous grant from The John S and James L Knight Foundation, was created to celebrate the art of the moving image and to give up-and-coming filmmakers an opportunity to showcase their work in Central Georgia. The diverse subject matter of independent films, ranging from innocent to provocative to very adult in nature, offers something for everyone and provides local movie buffs the opportunity to see films that will likely never be shown at Macon movie theatres.
