Mission Statement

Films have been often characterized as being essays on the human condition. In an essay, one should gather insights about the philosophy that guides the questions and attitudes of the work. Films should be no different. Film is Philosophy expressed through the medium of image- realized through light and sound. Presented and structured in such a way as to foster debate in the public and private forum.

The Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival welcomes all those films using the image median to question how we think and how we interact with the world. Films that question what it is to exist. What it is to know. What it is to love. What it means to be ethical and objective. What it is to experience. What it is to…

We welcome films aware of their role as provocateur in a world where answers are more readily available than questions. Films that use dialogue, story, image, style, tone and theme to confront our universal values and confront how we understand our experiences. Films that use ideas as a laboratory to explore the human condition.

In both style and content, we welcome all films that embark on the difficult and rewarding journey towards knowledge and better understanding.
