The Ogeechee International History Film Festival (OIHFF) is the only open submission, juried, international cinema program of its kind. In the past, festivals devoted to history films have been located in Europe and abroad. The OIHFF made its debut in March 2017 in Statesboro, Georgia, and has continued to promote and celebrate history presented through motion picture ever since. Now in its sixth season, it is also the longest-running film festival of this type in the world.
This juried festival is sponsored by the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Georgia Southern University Department of History, the Georgia Humanities Council, the Georgia Southern University Department of Political Science and International Studies, the Georgia Southern University Department of Communication Arts, the Georgia Southern University Department of World Languages and Cultures, the Georgia Southern University Film Club, the Georgia Southern University History Club, and the Georgia Southern College of Arts and Humanities.

If you are a filmmaker affiliated with a college or university, the Ogeechee International History Film Festival offers a service of double-blind peer review for use in tenure and promotion decisions. Our reviews typically involve a doctorate-holding historian and a filmmaker with an MFA or Ph.D. degree. Please contact festival director Michael Van Wagenen for more details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
