Movies change us, shape us, and mold us into the people we become. Like other forms of art, they can trigger a wide variety of emotions in each individual observer. They can make us laugh and cry, they can trigger feelings of joy, sadness, sorrow, regret, and more. They can be brilliant and breathtaking or subtle and thought-provoking. Movies can be many different things to many different people, and film festivals have become hugely popular ways to celebrate the art of movie-making and honor the film-makers, casts, and crew members that bring these visions to life.

There are many different film festivals organized all over the world, from humble shows in small towns to grand ceremonies in luxury locations like Cannes and Venice. Many of the larger events have sadly become increasingly commercial and inaccessible to casual film lovers, but if you truly love movies and want to celebrate them with like-minded people in a more relaxed, friendly setting, the Chattanooga Film Festival could be just what you need.

Founded as a non-profit organization and event in the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee by a small group of film fans, the Chattanooga Film Festival offers an authentic, exciting, enjoyable celebration of film for everyone to enjoy. It got started back in 2009 as a simple film club but has grown over the years through hard work, dedication, and a lot of passion for the pictures. The team behind the Chattanooga Film Festival doesn't have the same crazy budget and resources seen at some of the big-scale film festivals around the world, but they have a lot of heart and have successfully managed to create a wonderful film festival that the city can be proud of.

What's more, the people behind this film festival have consistently proven that they aren't in it for the money, with all proceeds from each festival go right back into the planning and preparation for the next one, This means that all classes and workshops are free to attend, with the main vision behind this film festival being to encourage and enlighten attendees about the magic of film and perhaps even inspire some of them to make a movie of their own in the future. The CFF will be offering more movies than ever before and more excitement for every attendee.
