Film festivals grant cinema buffs the opportunity to indulge in international pictures, discuss their favorite films, and use words like auteur and mise en scène without being rebuffed by the neighbor’s lowchen. Engage in cinematic linguistics with today’s Groupon to the Peachtree Village International Film Festival, running Thursday, August 18, through Sunday, August 21. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get one VIP all-access pass, which includes access to all film- and music-festival events on all days (up to a $250 value).

Celebrating its sixth year, The Peachtree Village International Film Festival sates celluloidal cravings with an eclectic slate of globe-spanning flicks, inventive workshops, and live music that boasts to be the largest of its kind in the Southeast. Guests can fix a critical eye on feature-length pictures, shorts, music videos, documentaries, and screenplays across the four-day fest, which seeks to bolster brain matter in addition to pacifying peepers. Commemorative screenings of New Jack City and Jungle Fever celebrate their 20th anniversaries, and devotees can mingle with the cast and crew by attending talkbacks or brazenly reenacting their favorite scenes via megaphone. Attendees brandishing an all-access VIP pass may also enliven ears at the International Soul Music Summit, which features a vibrant range of renowned soul singers, flourishing tunesmiths, and workshops designed to help navigate the industry, business, and any number of smoky nightclubs.
Led by working industry authorities, an edifying array of workshops and panels includes sessions on the basics of branding, screenplay construction, and casting techniques. A community-focused festival, Peachtree Village also arranges opportunities for aspiring artistes to meet with casting agents and attend the brand-new Pitch Tent, where filmmakers can perfect pitches with a slew of television and film executives as they provide helpful critiques and savory s’mores.* Films from around the world
