2020 Atlanta Film Festival + Creative Conference
In addition to a spectacular lineup of films, the 2020 Atlanta Film Festival (happening via drive-in and virtual screenings September 17 – 27, 2020) will host the 10th annual Creative Conference, a series of virtual educational panels, workshops and Masterclasses. The majority of the 32 Creative Conference events will be available on demand throughout the 11-day festival. Three scheduled livestream events anchor the lineup, including an “On Writing” Masterclass with Emmy and Peabody Award-winning writer-producer Damon Lindelof (HBO’s “Watchmen” and “The Leftovers,” ABC’s “Lost”).
With a focus on Masterclass conversations and panels featuring accomplished directors, showrunners, producers, writers, actors, production designers, editors and more, the Creative Conference lineup comprises a wide range of topics. A robust list of on-demand Masterclasses and panels will cover virtual pitching, development, creating family friendly content, marketing, digital branding, podcasting, and sales and distribution. Industry experts participating in the Creative Conference this year have credits including “The Walking Dead,” “Greenleaf,” “All American,” “Lovecraft Country” and LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE.
