Supporters of BronzeLens are actively carrying out the mission of exposing the public to the who’s who of this vast industry and the event highlights that will again make BronzeLens one of the nation’s most substantive film festivals.
For 2013, BronzeLens has selected over 40 films directed and produced by some of world’s best and brightest filmmakers representing the United States, Africa, Canada and South America. This year’s event also boasts of six featured Atlanta premieres
and master classes and workshops led by top names in film, direction, and production.
Founded in 2009, The BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing national and worldwide attention to Atlanta as a center for film and film production for people of color. Its mission is twofold: 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.
