Emory Cinematheque: Movies Made in Georgia

"Movies Made in Georgia" is a 14-film series of just that...movies made right here in Georgia. I attended the first screening last Wednesday, which was the 1989 Oscar-winning Driving Miss Daisy, and can hardly wait to return for more movies on the big screen!

Hosted by Emory Cinematheque, these films will be shown on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. in White Hall on the Emory University campus.

Eddy Von Mueller, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Film and Media Studies at Emory University and the series curator said in a press release, "Extraordinary movies have been made here, by extraordinary filmmakers, and it's incredible to have the opportunity to showcase some of them at a Georgia university, and as part of a program dedicated to presenting films as closely as possible to the way they were meant to be seen."

The following are dates and trailers of all films in the series. The title above each movie trailer links to that film's IMDB listing. I hope to see you there! (NOTE: Please be aware of film ratings—some are "Rated R"—before viewing trailers/films.)
