The Annual Screenplay Competition Retreat took place yesterday at an undisclosed location, and allowed screenplay competition finalist a chance to be mentored by writers Jamie Babbit, Karey Dornetto, James Ponsoldt and Autumn Canaday.

Over at 7 Stages, the sold out New Maverick block was a hit with patrons! The lovely ladies of WIFTA (Women in Television and Film Atlanta) held a pre-screening reception that hosted attending filmmakers Francesca Mirabella, Erin Galey, Chloe Dumont & Dehanza Rogers.

Shout out to our awesome local filmmakers for creating tons of excitement at the Plaza last night! Moral Sleaze kicked off the fun; followed by the WonderRoot shorts block. Touch the Puppet Head wrapped up the exciting evening and featured the hometown premiere of Molly Coffee's Magic The Gathering The Musical.

Two PINK PEACH films went head upstairs at the Plaza! PIT STOP and James Franco’s   INTERIOR:LEATHER BAR played to an incredibly receptive crowd.

The Starlight Six Drive-In was chilly, but still saw a crowd with free moonshine from the Dawnsonville Moonshine Distillery, some delicious oven-baked pizza from Your Pie, and of course white hot BBQ from The Optimist!
