After a fantastic opening weekend, the 37th Atlanta Film Festival continued with morecinematic excitement!
The CINformation series kicked off at 7 Stages with screenwriting and animation. ASIFA-Atlanta presented the animation portion of the panel. There was an awesome turnout for both; Top panels included Crafting Well-Rounded Characters, Working with Producers and Directors featuring Between Us director and Slamdance founder, Dan Mirvish, Screenwriting for Animation, and Sci-Fly demo with Joey Shanks. If you miss any of the awesome CINformation panels, don’t fret! 365wired host Camden will be live tweeting highlights from 7 Stages. Follow us at @atlfilm365 to stay updated.
7 Stages also featured the Animation and Experimental block. There were 12 experimental films and 13 animated films. 7 of those animated films participated in our Shorts competition.
The Plaza saw tons of excitement last night at the premiere of TUTTI GIU. The film’s director, Niccoló Castelli, and the Swiss consulate were both in attendance.
