Not Just Movies and Popcorn

The Covey Film Festival acknowledges that film is now recognized as a major cultural art form just as much as visual arts, dancing, theatre, and fine art. The Festival is a vehicle to educate audiences while also entertaining and engaging them through the screening of over twenty-plus films during Covey’s sixth season this coming October. Thomasville is unique in its early history of involvement in film production as well as the number of area residents, whether full time or seasonal, with ties here currently active in the film world.

Covey is also the signature fundraising event for the Thomasville Community Resource Center which for twenty years has provided services to children, their families, and the community. All net proceeds go back for the sole use of TCRC for services to 500 children and their parents in ten sites in Thomas, Mitchell, and Grady Counties.
