“I have attended film festivals all over the world. The BronzeLens Film Festival was one of the best film festivals I have ever attended. It had many great networking opportunities as well as being very organized and fun.”
~ Roger Bobb, Executive Vice President TYLER PERRY STUDIOS

"Different from music and film conferences I’ve attended over the years, by far, BronzeLens offered the better value." ~ Isha Edwards, Brand Marketing Consultant & Business Instructor, EPiC Measures, LLC

"As an aspiring film maker, I have never felt as empowered as I do now. The festival had such a profound affect on me and so many of my peers that I spoke with. I have never attended a film festival that was so well organized, so well thought out and so inspiring. It is so hard to believe this is it's inaugural year." ~Zion DB

"SunDance -WATCH OUT! The 2010 Bronze Lens Film Festival has set the pace for international film festivals within the USA. I was personally delighted with the level of professionalism, educated and experience panelists, along with supporters, which included the Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia. This is a film festival which has much growth potential, and a must attend during this film season!. " ~ Michael T.



We are excited that BronzeLens Film Festival was named as one of five film festivals in the nation chosen to participate in the inaugural release by AFFRM (African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement). The first AFFRM showing “I Will Follow,” which was the winner of the BronzeLens Film Festival’s “Best Feature” Award, was shown for 4 consecutive weeks in Atlanta at Phipps Plaza. Thanks to the massive publicity efforts of AFFRM founder and “I Will Follow” producer/writer Ava DuVernay, BronzeLens Film Festival was mentioned in two different articles in the New York Times, and once in the LA Times!
