Congratulations to the Macon Film Festival for making MovieMaker Magazine's Top 25 list of 'The Coolest Film Festivals in the World.' The long-running magazine is well known for its annual list of the top film festivals worth the entry fee—which has included the Atlanta Film Festival, the Savannah Film Festival and the Rome International Film Festival in recent years. While that list is released each spring, this list was recently compiled by reader votes.
An original list of 76 nominees was narrowed down to an final, unordered list of 25 festivals. Five other user voted lists were made for different categories—Documentary and Horror/Sci-Fi Festivals, Short Film and Comedy Festivals, Environmental/Social Cause and Women's Film Festivals, LGBT and Ethnic/National Film Festivals and Experimental/Underground and Out of the Box Festivals.
The Macon Film Festival will celebrate its 9th year of films, workshops, special guests and parties on February 27th through March 2nd. Check out www.maconfilmfestival.com for more information.
