Last year, several films were showcased at the Plaza Theatre in the first annual Attack Of the Fifty Foot Film Festival. Not only was it a sold out festival, but fans, filmmakers and the press alike, had a very special evening.
This year we’re excited to announce the return of The Fifty Foot Film Festival. Below, we have the official press release along with the films being premiered. But don’t wait to buy your tickets. This festival will sell out quickly!


Just in time for Halloween, the Fifty Foot Film Festival returns to the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta for another night of short film screenings by local filmmakers. The exciting event was a sell out last year. Featuring  quality shorts in the Sci-Fi/Horror/Fantasy and Suspense genres. “Last year was standing room only”, said organizer Debbie Hess of the Atlanta series, Horror Hotel. “We have twice as many filmmakers this year showcasing the incredible talents of our local cast and crew.
