Film Festival Collective is an XFINITY On Demand program that features short films and other quality content from a variety of film festivals across the Southeastern United States. The program spans across nine states and is available to millions of XFINITY customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
The Atlanta Film Festival, the Charleston International Film Festival, the Indie Memphis Film Festival and the Nashville Film Festival are the first festivals to join the lineup. Filmmakers who participated in previous editions of these festivals will work with each organization to lend their works to the On Demand collection for a limited time. Each festival will leave its mark on the Collective with its programming personality and expertise. Films from the festivals in the Collective will stretch across genre lines including animation, comedy, documentary, drama, horror, sci-fi, music videos,and beyond.
All Film Festival Collective content will be available at no additional cost to XFINITY subscribers within the region. The program is available on both the original Comcast On Demand platform as well as the new X1 platform. With X1, subscribers can access content using voice commands on their smart phone X1 remote control app.
Although individual film festivals supply their own unique film content, the entire program is curated by the Atlanta Film Festival (ATLFF). A 38-year-old Academy Award-qualifying film festival located in Georgia’s capital city, ATLFF is one of the oldest and largest festivals in the Southeast and has become known for its strong short film programming. In addition, ATLFF has enjoyed over five years in partnership with Comcast, including previous On Demand platforms.
