Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival
Another documentary film festival in the US East Coast is the Atlanta International Documentary film festival or DocuFest Atlanta which brings independent documentaries from various parts of the globe. The film festival is a platform to show different documentaries which either entertain or educate movie buffs of all ages. The competition gives out awards like best documentary feature, best director, audience’s choice award, best cinematography, best comedy documentary, best social documentary, best environmental documentary, best dramatic documentary, best international documentary, best environmental documentary, best dramatic documentary, best local documentary, best inspirational documentary, and best international documentary short.
The festival charges as cheap as $25 for short documentaries and $35 for feature documentaries for those who pass before the early bird deadline. Entries which make the regular entry deadline are charged $30 for shorts and $40 for feature documentaries. Late entries are charged $45 for short documentaries and $55 for feature documentaries. All entries should be in DVD or mini DV formats. Documentaries in foreign languages should have English subtitles. All entries should be accompanied with press kits and similar publicity materials. The festival committee prefers getting entry applications via paperless methods, and filmmakers are advised to visit the official website of the festival.
These are just two of the more established documentary film festivals in the US East Coast which have proven successful in promoting awareness of documentary film in that part of the United States.
