What is controversial? When a sculpture comes to a New England town, documentarians Beatrice Alda & Jennifer Brooke explore what would have that affect.
Writer/Actor Jeremy Oliver Miller went through a lot to make his movie AMOST HOME, about a soldier returning from war to face the father of his friend and fallen soldier.
Louie Palu’s film KANDAHAR JOURNALS is a touching, brutal look at his time in Afghanistan during the war as a photojournalist.
As part of the 2016 Macon Film Festival, Andrew McCarthy sat down to talk about his film PRETTY IN PINK which is celebrating it’s 30th Anniversary.
While we’re there, we will be partnering with the Roku channel PEACH FLICKS. So, you’ll be able to see our interviews on Peach Flicks the week that we have talked to the filmmakers.
This Fall, you’ll continue to be able to watch our interviews on VSU-TV here in Valdosta and on our Vimeo Channel.
At first glance, one could guess a movie about a love struck man attempting to take hold of his life through the ups and downs of what could only be considered a horrible break up. Needless to say this is not that. Jasmine is a Suspenseful thriller taking a look a man as he struggles to cope with the horrible murder of his beloved wife.
Director Dax Phalen’s film looks to be both a fantastic thriller as well as a psychological mind bender and I can’t wait to see it!
This film will be shown at the Macon Film Festival – Saturday at 10:30am

The title sounds like a romantic comedy, doesn’t it? Well, this story by Shania Koren is nothing like that. She chronicles the beautiful story of the Miami Heat Wheels and their coach, Coach Cartwrwight; what makes this documentary feature so beautiful is the story behind the Miami Heat Wheels team, a wheelchair basketball team trying to excel just like anybody else at something they love.
You can check out the film at the Macon Film Festival on July 22 at 1:15pm. If you can’t make it to the festival, that’s perfectly fine. You can get updates and other goodies from these links below:
This will be a must-see you WILL NOT regret watching!

For the past few years Mass Media Students from Valdosta State University have visited the Macon Film Festival in Macon, Georgia. The film festival takes place in downtown Macon around the city’s theaters, best restaurants, and bars. Some students go for the fun and some students go for the experience. During their trip students interview the film’s directors, writers, musicians, and other people involved with the films. These interviews are normally added to the VOD Indie page on Vimeo after the festival. This year all of the participants were asked to find and research a hand full of the films that will be showcased this year. After conducting a little bit of research and doing some cyber snooping I truly believe I picked a few of the best films. This year I will be searching for anyone involved with Autumn Fall, Bullied to Death, Practice, Farmer/Veteran, Perfect Houseguest, In Memory, and Winter Light. Each film looks great and I am truly excited to see all seven films during my trip.
While I am excited to see every film I am extremely excited to see Perfect Houseguest.

Perfect Houseguest is an animated short film, and anyone who knows anything about me knows that I am infatuated with animation. This is not directors Ru Kuwahata & Max Porter’s first time at the Macon Film Festival. Last summer during the Macon Film Festival Tiny Inventions has their short animated film Between Times featured. The film was incredible, so their is no doubt that their newest short film will be great. Last year during my trip I was able to interview an animator, so hopefully I will be able to interview the wonderful creators of this film.
