About This Event

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival continues its commitment to harnessing the power of cinematic storytelling to educate high school and college students about current events, historical topics and global communities through the AJFF On Campus initiative, returning to Emory University September 15-17 and expanding to Pace Academy with a screening on September 5. AJFF On Campus at Emory will include five narrative and documentary favorites from past festivals, exhibited across three days at the Goodrich C. White Hall auditorium. A new partnership with Pace Academy will feature an encore presentation in the Fine Arts Center of the documentary Witness Theater, a behind-the-scenes look at an intergenerational program which brings together Holocaust survivors and high school students.

AJFF On Campus is open to Pace Academy and Emory University students, faculty, and staff, as well as the general public. Both events will feature past AJFF film favorites, and special guest speakers.

About AJFF: The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a cinematic exploration of Jewish experience — Jewish culture and history, life in Israel, and the work of Jewish artists — particularly where these stories intersect with other communities both here in Atlanta and around the world. Seeking to use the power of film to both entertain and educate, AJFF challenges conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing the Jewish and global communities.

Film Pitch ATL - June

Screen Shot 2019-04-25 at 8.56.55 AM.png

About This Event

Engage with some of the southeast’s most talented independent filmmakers. Listen as they tell you about their most current production and how they plan to take it from script to screen. Learn from them as they explain their concept, how they find cast and crew, their financing strategy, and their marketing and business plan... aka how do they plan to distribute their film and actually make money!

After each pitch, the director/producer of the project will open the floor to questions for a 5 minute Q&A with the audience... ask them anything!

Each project that pitches already has a finished script and is deep into pre-production, with the ability to begin principal photography within 6 months. Their presentation at Film Pitch ATL is to help them gain more exposure for their project, close a funding round, fill final cast and crew positions, and potentially begin distribution conversations.

Join us in the audience if you're an investor, a potential investor, actor, above and below the line crew, film business professionals, film enthusiast, or just curious to learn more about the ATL film scene.

Coverfly has a Fee Waiver Program

unnamed.jpg


There are many fantastic talent discovery programs using Coverfly that have a long history of helping writers take the next step in their career. For some writers, that’s the right introduction to a manager and others that’s a massive spec sale.

However, for writers with lower incomes, submission fees may prevent entering a script or accessing great educational content.

So, in conjunction with these amazing partners, Coverfly has launched a fee waiver program that is based on merit and financial need, to give all writers access to the valuable programs on Coverfly. The goal of the program is to help find great stories from talented writers who may not otherwise be able to afford some of these talent-discovery programs. We believe in opening doors for talented writers — this is a way to open the door a little wider.

The application is completely free and will ask for:

  • A sworn affidavit verifying applicant’s income and eligibility

  • Two writing samples

  • A 300-word essay addressing why you want to be a writer


Eligibility

  • Writers must be 25 years of age or older

  • Writers must have earned less than $25,000 in the previous calendar year

  • Writers may only apply once per calendar year

  • Writers may not have made any money from writing for the screen in the past
