Cobb International Film Festival
July 30 - August 1
The Cobb International Film Festival is a collaboration between Long Shot Productions, The Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre, Cobb Travel and Tourism, the City of Marietta and the Cobb County Government. Held in the Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre on beautiful Marietta Square in Marietta, Georgia each year, this festival is a meeting place for filmmakers and people who are interested in the world in all its variety and different approaches to life. The festival offers filmmakers a platform to introduce their work and discuss topics shown in the film as well as the filmmaking process to encourage and create a dialogue between people. The Festival accepts feature-length films, short films and documentary films of all lengths from filmmakers at all different levels. In 2016, the Cobb International Film Festival began a partnership with Film Racing and includes the Screenings and Awards Program for the top fifteen international finalists of the 24 Hour Film Race as part of the festival. In 2019, the Festival entered a partnership with the Inaugural COBB INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL, held the same weekend as the film festival, further enhancing the international flavor of the festival.
