Film Festival Frenzy: Will you see the next QT, TP, or Spike Lee?

GSU Student Film Festival, a 3 night juried event, takes place this week!


There’s a lot of activity on this week’s film calendar—from Harry Shearer’s appearance at the Lefont Sandy Springs tonight accompanying the The Big Uneasy, and with ov er 600 already RSVP’d to attend this Month’s GET CONNECTED Atlanta Film Industry Mixer taking place Thursday evening April 28 at Atlantic Station’s Fox Sports Grill, as well as the return of DecaturDocs (disclosure: a documentary film series which I co-founded, and which I also co-host) this Saturday night April 30th—so it would be easy to overlook this gem of en event taking place over the course of the next four nights.

Don’t miss your chance to see the next generation’s Martin Scorseses, QTs, Spike Lees, Tyler Perrys, James Camerons and Katherine Bigalows at the GSU Student Film Festival.
