The 6th Annual Macon Film Festival will take place February 17 – 20, 2011, at three venues in historic downtown Macon, Georgia. In 2010 the Festival added free filmmaking workshops to the lineup of more than 60 hours of screenings and special events.

This year the Macon Film Festival is excited to announce three free filmmaking workshops, conducted by special guests including director Nick Moran, actor/filmmaker Morgan Simpson, and screenwriter Scott Seeke, a Macon Film Festival news release says.

The workshops will be held at The 567 Center for Renewal, located at 533 Cherry Street, within easy walking distance of the Cox Capitol Theatre and the Douglass Theatre, the two landmarks which anchor the festival.

Macon Film Festival is dedicated to entertaining, educating, and inspiring audiences and filmmakers alike by offering innovative and imaginative films both mainstream and independent in nature.
