UMFF 2006 continued the strong Atlanta vibe that encompasses the city's signature of being culturally diverse. UMFF 2006 brings 1,000+ minutes of independent film screenings from around the world. UMFF 2006 honored winning festival filmmakers, as well as Georgians and national artists that are making a mark on the independent film community.

Words from UMFF 2006 Attendees
"On behalf of the crew and cast of "Eyes on the Young,"
we would like to thank you for a good time this weekend."
I am reaching out to you on behalf of myself and my business/artistic
partner, Rod Hollimon, to thank you for a wonderful weekend. It was very
empowering to see this film make the impact that we intended it to have.
... just a note to say thanks for the opportunity to screen Layla's Girl
and to meet all the great people who participated. The fest was part of
a memorable first trip to Atlanta. Hope you were happy with this weekend
- all the best to you!
Congratulations on a wonderful event. I am glad I could be a part of
it. I have already gotten correspondence from some of those that attended
Cheryle, thanks so much for inviting me down to participate in the festival.
I met a lot of great people and it was great to finally come visit Atlanta.
The response to my work, Criminal Mind in particular, was great
and I'm really glad to have had a platform to start showing my work in
Atl... Thanks again for everything and congratulations on pulling off
