This year the 4th SLINGSHOT Festival will take place on March 19-22, 2014 at the downtown of Athens, Georgia. Aside from some intriguing collections of musicians and visitors, we will be hosting an international film festival where over 80 films with different themes and subjects are being presented here in the capitol city.
The festival is divided into eight sections: Music, Cinema, Art, Images & Photography, Design/UX/Business Processes, Food & Drink/Culinary Arts and Crafts. The Film section is a completely open one where every kind of film can be screened without fee or restriction. It’s a great opportunity for people to discover our beautiful city even if they do not know it well yet!
