Film is Philosophy expressed through the medium of image-
realized through light and sound. Presented and structured in such a
way as to foster debate in the public and private forum.
It is our vision and our hope to not only screen important films, but
also create an environment of cultural, historical, and aesthetic
enrichment through conversation, presentation, and cinematic
celebration. Heading into our 6th edition, it is our continued
to not only challenge local audiences both cinematically and
philosophically, but ultimately help shape and define the genre of
Philosophy Films, in
doing so preserve
a collection of films which will someday serve as a dynamic and
textured survey of the great philosophical questions of our time as
explored through the visual arts.
The Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival is
hardest thinking no-fee festival in the business. Since 2008, we have
exhibited films we believe speak about the human condition, ask
questions, and challenge the audience to consider the content of our
program. This year is no different. We will be screening short and
feature films which provoke the audience to discover through the art of
cinema and we hope you join us.
