The 9th Annual Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival (DocuFest Atlanta) is an annual celebration of documentary films and filmmakers.

The Atlanta International Documentary Festival (DocuFest Atlanta) brings you the best in independent documentary film and video from across the globe.

DocuFest Atlanta showcases meaningful life stories which educate and entertain audiences of every demographic.

We encourage talented documentary filmmakers from every country to enter their short and feature length documentary films. Come share your story with our audience, and meet other documentary filmmakers from all over the world.

Join us for this very special event, where life-changing documentary films and their creators are celebrated.

Although we accept mailed submissions, we prefer submissions via Withoutabox's Secure Online Screeners. Our judges from all parts of the world can view your work, and make a decision much quicker than by mailing a copy. You will save on shipping cost, and cut down on the waste of packaging material. If you prefer to mail a copy, please also email a link where we can view your film online (if possible).

Cost of shipping exhibition prints to the festival is the responsibility of the entrant. Exhibition copies must be sent to the festival prepaid. The festival cannot accept responsibility for damage or loss of materials while in transit. Please use as little packaging material as possible.

Entry fees must be in U.S. funds only.

Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the presentational format will need to be in our office two weeks before the festival. Be sure to indicate aspect ratio of your film/video as well as any other special screening/presentation information we might need to know. We do not pay rental fees for submitted work that is programmed.
