The Southern Film Festival seeks to provide an exciting creative platform for filmmakers to have their work screened and judged. Our vision is to encourage filmmakers, both professional and novice, along the film-making process and catapult them into their full potential. The festival screens both short films and feature-length films of all genres, as well as hosting one-on-one Q&A’s with filmmakers that allows them to fully engage the festival audience.

Everyone has a story to tell we are here to listen.

The Southern Film Festival is brought to you by Eric B Wright, the founder of the Lanett City Film Festival, and in partnership with the Lafayette Theatre Academy of LSPA (the Lafayette Society for Performing Arts) in downtown LaGrange, Georgia.
