The SWFF takes place August 3-5 at Southern Performing Arts Academy (3315 Sugarloaf Pkwy SW, Ste 15, Lawrenceville, GA 30044) where we utilize four rooms of the facility.  It is home to Southern Ballet Theatre, a premiere dance and performance arts studio and is used for multiple functions including their yearly haunted attraction “Dracula Haunts.”

There will be two screening rooms dedicated to presentation of independent films and two other rooms for panel discussions and workshops that are scheduled throughout the weekend.

In addition to the yearly film festival, this venue is also home to SWFF’s “Movie Nights” film screenings in addition to other events!  Concessions will be sold at the venue during all SWFF events but there are also several restaurants close to easy walking distance or short driving distance.
