The Atlanta Sci-fi Film Festival is presented by the
Multicultural Sci-fi Organization (MCSFO)
The mission of our annual Atlanta sci-fi (SF) film festival is to provide screens for the finest independent SF films locally and internationally. To increase cultural diversity and interest in SF film/tv, to inspire and strengthen the local SF film community by cultivating an engaged audience. Creating independent SF films are becoming less intimidating with today’s technology.
We're creating a fertile ground for nurturing new talent and exploring concepts mainstream studios would never support.
MCSFO - To promote, discuss and educate in the medium of science fiction and technology with a unique focus
from an international perspective. To support culturally diverse SF books and films that don’t fit the mold of the
working definition of science fiction. MCSFO.org will become an online platform where sci-fi creatives can network
and collaborate on new projects. We encourage rich storytelling, filled with infinite possibilities that challenge us and
question our perception of the future!
