Episode 55: The Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival
Over three years ago, Samuel Dyches and Chris Fogarty worked together in a warehouse and would talk philosophy and film. From this, a film festival was born! The Atlanta Philosophy Film Festival is now in its third year and commences TODAY. The festival comprises short films from all over the world. Tonight features Philosophy of Love and is at 7:30pm at the Plaza Theater. Tomorrow’s is Philosophy of Society and is at 9:30pm, again at the Plaza Theater. Oh, and the whole event is FREE!
Listen here or download on Itunes* and go see these films!
Topics include: slow cinema, how to start a film festival, and why these guys do it all for free.
