10th Annual Dixie Film Festival

As an international competition showcasing the latest independent flicks by emerging filmmakers, the Dixie Film Festival presents awards to the best feature film, short, comedy, animation, documentary, foreign, screenplay, Mason-Dixon (Georgia filmmaker) and Peach Fuzz (police-related film). The weekend kicks off with a mixer hosted by the festival team at Trappeze Pub on Friday, 7–9 p.m., and a meet and greet with filmmakers, also at Trappeze, is slated for Sunday at 12 p.m. Screenings will run continuously throughout the weekend, with a series of Dixie Shorts on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. and a handful of World Shorts on Sunday at 7 p.m. A collection of “Mason-Dixon” screenings—including Restitution, Fun World, Passing, By And By and The Cabin—will highlight recent works of Georgia filmmakers on Saturday at 5 p.m. Check out Flagpole’s calendar or for a full schedule. Tickets are $10 for a two hour screening or $35 for a full festival pass.
