Short Films

Summer in the South Film Festival welcomes filmmakers and their amazing films as we say goodbye to summer over Labor Day weekend – in the heart of the South – Atlanta, GA. We have an entire weekend packed with independent film screenings, Q&As with the filmmakers, stand-up comedy, live panels with professionals in the film industry, and networking.


Script writers, in addition to submitting your script to the festival we also provide optional script coverage. Script coverage with our festival includes the price of your submission fee. Your work will be analyzed by a Cinema Life filmmaker who’s produced award winning films, has extensive writing experience, and also understands the indie way of filmmaking.
