‘Filmer’ Gives Behind-the-Scenes View of Artists’ Creative Process

Filmer, a one-of-a-kind cinema arts project that pairs Georgia filmmakers with artists from all over the country, will hit the big screen at the Carrollton Center for the Arts, February 7. 

“What I find special about this festival is that all of the filmmakers are from Georgia,” said Carrollton Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “I love the opportunity to showcase the creative talents of Georgia artists. I love the quality of these films. The filmmakers have captured these artists in a way that feels like you are in their studio and you are talking with them, one-on-one.“ 

AIR Serenbe, the nonprofit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, provides artists of all disciplines time and space to develop new work. Through their Filmer program, AIR Serenbe commissions filmmakers to make original short portrait films that focus on those artists’ person and process. Filmmakers are given full creative control over the films, paid an honorarium and provided with a residency at the Serenbe community in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. The Carrollton event will showcase this year’s finished films, with one of the filmmakers in attendance and AIR Serenbe director of operations, Michael Bettis, facilitating.
