Day 5: We've Reached the Halfway Point

The 37th Atlanta Film Festival has hit the halfway point, and shows no sign of slowing down! Our Screenwriting and Animation CINformation panels continued yesterday at 7 Stages. "Oneliners and Elevator Pitches," "Writing Webisodes," and "Vocal Rehab" proved to be hits among the crowd. The Plaza saw a huge crowd for ICEBERG SLIM: THE PORTRAIT OF A PIMP. ICEBERG’S director, was in the house and also participated in an informative Q&A.

7 Stages hosted BBC America’s BLACK ORPHAN screening, along with Boyd Tinsley’s Atlanta Premiere of FACES IN THE MIRROR. Tinsley’s experimental musical saw fantastic support from audience members. Charles Judson hosted a Q&A after the film ended and Boyd Tinsley along with Atlanta’s own FLAP performed a very special post-screening set.
