Atlanta Film Society is a 501c3 art nonprofit dedicated to supporting Georgia's growing film community & industry. Our mission is to connect, educate, and engage audiences with the creative industry by supporting artists and providing a platform for their work. We champion cultural discovery, foster artistic growth, and advocate for diverse voices in film and media arts, both locally and worldwide.

Positioned at the intersection of art, culture and commerce, the Atlanta Film Society brings meaning to the moving image by championing the shared community experience, fostering the free exchange of ideas, and nurturing the development of a thriving industry.  The organization dates back to its founding as IMAGE Film & Video Center in 1976, an outgrowth of the need for equipment access, networking, information dissemination, and support among Georgia media artists and producers. IMAGE was the first media arts center in the state of Georgia and on May 14, 1977, it launched the Atlanta Independent Film & Video Festival at Piedmont Park. 

In 1984, the organization truncated the name to Atlanta Film and Video Festival, and again in 2002, to the Atlanta Film Festival. From its inception as IMAGE and through four decades and several name changes, the same community focus and year-round programming remained the same. In 2015, the organization became the Atlanta Film Society.
