The C-47 project gives Georgia filmmakers visibility by combining filmmaking, digital and broadcast technologies to create a multimedia website and quarterly broadcast showcase.
Watch the Featured Film

Designed to foster creativity, engagement and camaraderie within Georgia's film industry, C-47 rewards filmmakers focused on quality filmmaking within the boundaries of the short film format. This juried competition allows Georgia's industry professionals to recognize our superior local filmmakers.

Each quarter, one filmmaker and their film will be awarded special recognition and featured on the C-47 program and the C-47 website. At the conclusion of each year, one film will be chosen via audience and industry voting as the top short film in the state of Georgia. The C-47 site also features more of the top shorts submitted each quarter, interviews and filmmaking tutorials.
