Film Festival Flix, a streamer dedicated to film festivals, is hosting a channel for the Macon Film Festival, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

Starting today, August 13, through Sunday, August 30, the channel will offer all of this year’s official selections, via either $50 all-access festival passes or $10 tickets to watch films and programming blocks a la carte. You can stream your selections at or via Film Festival Flix apps for TVs and mobile devices.

Among this year’s entrants:

Narrative Feature Films – Cabarete, about a kite-surfing teen in the Dominican Republic; and The Black Emperor of Broadway, about an African-American actor who, in the early 1900s, is cast by Eugene O’Neill in his groundbreaking Broadway play The Emperor Jones. The Savvy Screener caught the latter film as part of the Brooklyn Film Festival back in May and highly recommends it.

Documentaries – My Father’s Brothers, in which eight survivors of a battle during the Vietnam War are still coping with the experience; and Dusty Groove: The Sound of Transition, in which Chicago vinyl buyer Rick Wojcik explores the homes and stories of strangers by going through their jazz, soul, and hip hop records. 

Macon-Made Shorts – Short-films from Macon-based filmmakers include Raising Annabeth and In the Wake of Judgement.

Georgia-Made Shorts – Georgian filmmakers contribute such titles as Providence and Thank You for Calling.

Other categories include Short Film Collections, Music Short Documentaries, LGBTQ Shorts, Student Shorts and Documentary Shorts.
