The 3rd Annual Cause + Effect Progressive Film Festival is this Saturday at Cine. The 11 finalists will be screened at the event. Director Brandon Hannick says the two to 15-minute-long short films must focus on a political, environmental, economic or social justice issue in Georgia. 

“This year’s extra special because we have a guest speaker, our first guest speaker, Christopher Everett, who is a great director from North Carolina who lived in Atlanta for a while and he directed the film “Wilmington on Fire,” Hannick said. “He’ll be giving a speech on the power of social media in film and then showing some clips from his amazing documentary film.
