We're looking for enthusiastic and knowledgeable film lovers to join our screening committee for ATLFF. Spots are limited, and only serious applicants will be considered.
A screener is a volunteer whose role is to watch and review submissions, providing notes and recommendations for programmers to review when they evaluate submissions. Each year ATLFF must narrow down thousands of submissions to the roughly 150 films that will make up our program, and the work of screeners is invaluable to this process.
Screeners can earn up to an All-Access Badge to the 2020 festival depending on the number of films they watch!
The ATLFF Screening Committee is comprised of 50 to 100 screeners from the Atlanta community to watch films each year who themselves are academics, filmmakers, screeners for other festivals, ATLFF alums, and/or regular ATLFF attendees.
PLEASE NOTE: Screeners do not program films for the festival nor make any decisions regarding programming. They are not representatives of the programming team nor are they staff or affiliates of the Atlanta Film Festival/Atlanta Film Society. By filling out this application, you acknowledge the volunteer nature of the role.
