BronzeLens Film Festival was created to be a multicultural festival showcasing the talent of the next generation of filmmakers and also promoting the growth of production in Georgia. We have grown from a four day event to a year round presenter of screenings and workshops recognized nationally and internationally.
Highlights of BronzeLens have included: 1) Accepting the invitation to be a charter member of the African American Film Festival Releasing Movement after our first festival. This unique distribution model created by filmmaker Ava DuVernay has enabled us to be supportive of quality independent films; 2) Partnering with a wide variety of organizations including the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Africa Atlanta 2015, Hammonds House, France Atlanta 2015, the Atlanta University Center colleges, Autism Speaks, The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, and environmental organizations to name a few; 3) Being asked by the Steve Harvey organization to produce its first film festival for the annual Neighborhood Awards Expo in 2014 and 2015; 4) Multiple years of screening independent films from around the region, the nation and the world.[totaldonations]
