As an introduction to the internship and class credit options available to West Georgia students next semester, the Georgia Film Academy gave an informational lecture about their program, a panel discussion with faculty and those working with the new program, and a brief Q&A with prospective students.
Join us for this fantastic lecture with Dr. Hefner!
We are so excited to host filmmaker Alison Bagnall for a screening of her AFI, SXSW, ATLFF, and on and on nominated film, Funny Bunny It tells the bizarre story of a latchkey trust-funder and a hapless anti-childhood-obesity crusader bond as they vie for the heart of a troubled animal activist.
The event will take place at the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center on February 24. The screening starts at 6pm and will be followed by a conversation with the filmmaker herself, live in-person! It's free and open to the public, so come one come all (well, maybe over 13).
Whether you're interested in the Atlanta rap game, struggling to figure out how to maintain and further your ambition with so much on your plate, looking for nuanced images of black fatherhood, or a documentary fan, you'll want to check out Atlanta Film Festival hit, Divided Time. After the screening, filmmaker Will Feagins will talk to us about his inspiration, how the film fits into his larger project, what art means to him and how he thinks it matters to the world.
Free and open to all Film Studies Minors. October 20 at 5:30pm, Callaway 145.
Hey Horror Fans! Screenwriter Michael Lucker is joining us to talk about his "Big Break"—writing the screenplay for Wes Craven's Vampire in Brooklyn, starring Eddie Murphy. After watching the film, he'll tell us about: how he made the transition from Atlanta boy to Hollywood heavy hitter, the differences between writing for animation and live action, and all aspects of the artistic process.
Film Studies Minors are invited to Callaway 145 at 5:30pm on Thursday, October 15.
Meet the director and screenwriters of Good Grief Suicide Hotline, one of the hits—and one of the funniest films—of this year's Atlanta Film Festival. After a screening of the film, these two gentlemen will stay for an audience Q&A.
The event is free and open to the public. At TLC 1200: doors open at 6:45pm and the screening begins at 7pm.
Hope to see you there!
