Promoting Positive, Educational and Entertaining Films for Children
Celebrating 16 Years!
We are excited about celebrating 16 years of the Atlanta Children’s Film Festival. We are grateful for our growth which is partly due from the embrace and nurturing of the Atlanta Film Community. A special thanks to our partners and sponsors – the National Endowment for the Arts, Georgia Council for the Arts, Emory University Department of Film & Media, South Arts, the DeKalb Entertainment Commission and the Tyler Perry Foundation for the support and funding that has enabled us to grow and reach more children each year.
This educational and fun film festival is two weeks of eye-opening and exciting activities which include film screenings, media literacy and video production workshops for children, teens and independent producers. The Atlanta Children’s Film Festival kicks-off on June 9, 2023.
We showcase films produced by youth. Also, we promote positive films produced by independent producers from around the world.
We are now accepting submission for our 2023 film festival.
