Reeling Out Georgia Film to the World

No wonder why you might run into celebrities when taking a stroll on the Beltline: Atlanta became the “Hollywood of the South.” From 2008 to 2017, the industry has grown from $67.7 million to $2.7 billion in Georgia, creating thousands of jobs and hosting productions like “The Walking Dead”, “Stranger Things”, and Marvel’s hit “The Avenger: Infinity War”.  Georgia indeed hosts some great venues for these productions, yet tax incentives were key for the film industry to boom in the ATL.

A panel of Atlanta’s most creative minds will explore how Georgia can remain internationally competitive, and describe their vision for the future of Atlanta’s film and TV production industries.

Featuring:

  • Sheoyki Alexis Jones, Program Manager, Creative Industries at Invest Atlanta
  • Drew Sawyer, Partner & Post-Producer, Moonshine Post Production Company
  • Susanna Spiccia, Executive Director, re:Imagine ATL
  • Diamonde Williamson, CEO, Blossom
