Filmer: A Premiere of Original Short Films About AIR Serenbe Artists

  • Rich Theatre, Woodruff Arts Center 1280 Peachtree Street Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

A one-of-a-kind project featuring Georgia filmmakers producing films about some of the most interesting artists in the country.

AIR Serenbe nurtures critical moments of imagination. Filmer brings to life the untapped creative energy of emerging and established Georgia filmmakers by pairing them with high caliber artists from all over the country. In this match up, we commission filmmakers to make an original short portrait film that illuminates something of the artist’s person and process. We give the filmmakers full creative control over the films, pay them an honorarium, provide them with a residency, and honor them as the artists they are. At the end of the year, we present a premiere of all Filmer films to a live audience in a large theater in Atlanta.

This year, we will produce and premiere 16 new films by 14 filmmakers.
