अतिथि देवो भवः is a Sanskrit word taken from India which means “We welcome our guests with huge respect”. We welcome all the filmmakers, film fraternity and cinema lovers to enjoy and nourish the culture and tradition of embracing the Northeast Mountain Film Festival’s First Year. The idea of the festival is inspired from India which traces its roots back to the ancient story telling since Vedic time. The whole concept of the Northeast Mountain Film Festival is to connect the modern film-makers to the roots of mother earth by celebrating the era of films in a historic countryside of United States based in Georgia.
The Festival is celebrating its first year at the Dillard House, a resort located in the historic town of Dillard, Georgia where we are showcasing films from different genres from over 40 countries. Along with exceptional feature films, the festival includes socializing talks, outdoor programming, presentations and much more!
