The Bronze Lens Film Festival of Atlanta, Georgia is a non-profit organization founded in 2009, that is dedicated to bringing national and worldwide attention to Atlanta as a center for film and film production for people of color. In fact, the mission of the Bronze Lens Film Festival of Atlanta, Georgia is two fold: to promote Atlanta as the new film mecca for people of color; and to showcase films and provide networking opportunities that will develop the next generation of filmmakers.
Over the course of 4 days in mid-November, during the Soul Train Awards weekend, film lovers, actors, and film makers gathered in the culture-and-heritage-rich Atlanta at the Marriott Marquis to share a creative platform of education, entertainment and empowerment discussions relating to film, television, and the production of both.
