C-47: Georgia Short Film Showcase

The jury has been selected and judging has begun for the C-47: Georgia Short Film Showcase inaugural round. Designed to foster creativity, engagement, and camaraderie within Georgia's film industry, C-47 gives Georgia filmmakers a broadcast platform in their home state.

Films will be judged quarterly and the filmmaker and their film will be featured on the Georgia Public Broadcasting C-47 program, discussed at length on the C-47 website, and recognized as a superior Georgia filmmaker. At the end of each year, one film will be chosen via audience and industry voting as the top short film for that year in Georgia.

C-47 has been increasing its presence in the Georgia film community by creating public awareness at film festivals throughout Georgia, including the Atlanta Film Festival, Rome International Film Festival, Savannah Film Festival and the TeenScreen Film Festival at AthFest.

The Showcase has also been garnering interest from several media outlets with recent mentions in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Creative Loafing and Southern Screen Report.
