PGA ATL Event
What's Next For Equity in Georgia's Film Industry

Sunday, November 3rd at 8:45pm*

PGA Atlanta Chapter invites you and one guest to a Panel Discussion and PGA Members Reception at The Plaza Theatre on Sunday, November 3rd.

Georgia's film tax credit has fueled growth and opportunity — and also a chance to shape a more inclusive and women-friendly market.

Panelists from Atlanta and NY explore how we got here and how each of us can avoid pitfalls, build a stronger market, and create a fair and equitable media culture.
Panelists include Ilan Arobelda, Tom Donahue, Lisa Ferrell, Mary Giese, Simone Pero, and Simone Torres, moderated by Denise Hendricks.

RSVP here for the panel.

*Please note: The Atlanta Film Society is sponsoring a public pre-panel screening of This Changes Everything, courtesy of sponsors Atlanta Metro Studios, Areu Bros Studios, Eagle Rock Studios, EUE Screengems Studios, Georgia State University Communications Department, and Mailing Avenue Stageworks. PGA Attendees who wish to see the film must register via the Atlanta Film Society site here. PGA members may attend the film using code PGATCECOMP
