Surrounded by a rich musical and southern culture, the Macon Film Festival celebrates independent films while promoting filmmaking for entertainment, inspiration, education and economic development. The Macon Film Festival screens independent films from around the world in multiple historic theatres in the city's downtown district. The festival features film screenings, celebrity guests, special screenings and workshops throughout the festival weekend.

In 2015, the Macon Film Festival will celebrate its tenth anniversary with a shift from its traditional February spot on the calendar to a mid-summer date. In collaboration with the Bragg Jam Music, Arts and Kids Festival, a new ten-day film and music event will hit the streets and theaters of Macon next year.
