The Big River Film Festival held in Savannah, Georgia offered access to creative voices through film programming, master classes, live performances and conversations with the most compelling independent artists working today in the region. The Festival was a great chance to discover new voices, experience the art of filmmaking, as well as to explore TV, web series and alternative media. The primary mission of Big River Film Festival was to introduce productions, professionals, and film students to the state of Georgia and all that there is to offer there, and we think they did a great job of that.
The Festival’s signature programs included the Filmmaker In-The-Know, Coffee Talks, Master Classes, Screenings, Awards and more. The Festival premiered features and short films created by rising independent filmmakers across the globe. The Festival also hosted a number of juried cash awards, as well as audience awards.
Although the festival hasn’t ran for a number of years, we still believe that it had a huge impact on the film industry in Georgia and we would love to see it return one day!
