MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Since 2004, the Atlanta Underground Film Festival (AUFF) has served as a forum where independent filmmakers thrive outside the mainstream arena.

The AUFF exposes and promotes creative artists who work outside the system to create DIY, grass-roots movies that break the boundaries of film and video. Through the festival, these talented independent filmmakers now have a voice in a market typically saturated with commercial entertainment designed to satisfy the audience's expectations.

Much more than the traditional stuffy film festival, Atlanta Underground Film Festival will showcase short and feature films in a down-to-earth, welcoming setting where filmmakers and fans are encouraged to connect and collaborate.

AUFF is celebrating 11 years in 2014, and the festival will be the biggest and best yet! After 11 years, we are proud to have showcased thousands of incredible up-and-coming film and video artists from nearly every country in the world.

Join us for this incredible celebration! Submit your features and shorts of every genre today, and experience the 11th Annual Atlanta Underground Film Festival.
