We are pleased to bring all of the 2017 Filmer films back together for a one-night screening at Serenbe. These films premiered to a live audience at the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta in November of 2017, but this is the first time the films will be shown in Chattahoochee Hills, in and of the place that inspired them. If you missed the premiere of these 16 short films, created by metro Atlanta filmmakers about AIR Serenbe artists, then this free screening will be a great chance to catch them. And, if you were at the premiere and just need to see these beautiful short films again, we'll see you down at Serenbe!
For this screening, we are partnering with chef Brian Moll and the Farmhouse Restaurant for a pre-show special menu. Chef Moll will create a special $40 three-course dinner designed to delight your palate and get you to Filmer on time! Additionally, there will be a cash bar for wine, beer, and cocktails at the screening.
A portion of proceeds from tonight's dinner and drinks will go to benefit AIR Serenbe.
The Filmer screening is a FREE event, but RSVPs are required.
Drinks and doors open at 7:15pm
Screening at 8pm.
Total run-time is 80min.
To make a dinner reservation, call The Farmhouse at (770) 463-2622 or go to serenbefarmhouse.com.
*For those who book online, please add a note mentioning you will be attending the show and that you are visiting for the special menu. The Farmhouse requests that these reservations be made for no later than 6:30pm to ensure guests are able to finish in time for Filmer.
More about Filmer:
Filmer brings to life the untapped creative energy of emerging and established Atlanta filmmakers by pairing them with some of the most interesting 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 right here in Atlanta.
In 2017, our first year of Filmer, we commissioned seven filmmakers to create a total of 16 short films, ranging in length from two to twenty minutes. We premiered all of the films in one night at the Woodruff Arts Center, followed by a VIP party at Edgar Allan’s office for featured filmmakers and artists, as well as our partners, patrons, and advisors. The films now live on our website and YouTube channel and are available for viewing and sharing by the public. Poets & Writers Magazine recently featured one of our films on the poet Eve Ewing (made by Adam Forrester) and The Bitter Southerner ran a story with six of the Filmer films.
AIR Serenbe, the non-profit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the creation of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices.
