6X6 is changing the program up in November -- instead of experiencing media work from around town, state, and globe, we'll be hanging out with with our friends in the other Athens film interest groups for a fast, fun, free film festival panel. "Meet the Festival Organizers: The Inside Scoop on Film Festivals and Film Festival Programming" will take place during the usual 6X6 scheduled time of 7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 1 at the Ciné lab.
We are delighted that we've been included in this entertaining and educational event, which represents an exciting new direction for 6X6, in which we will join co-presenters EcoFocus Film Festival, UGA Filmmaking Union, Film Athens, and Ciné. Not only will we hear from top-notch panelists such as Charles Judson from the award-winning Atlanta film festival, Harry Musselwhite, executive director of the Rome International Film Festival, and our own Sara Beresford, director and lead programmer of the EcoFocus Film Festival in Athens, we'll also be enjoying the chance to see our longtime pal Dave Marr (singer, film critic, Flagpole city editor, Ciné programming committee member, and raconteur) attempt to keep this highly qualified panel in line and help us get the inside scoop on how festivals work, from planning, to programming, to getting your work selected.
Panel dicussion participants include:
- Sara Beresford, Director/Programmer, EcoFocus Film Festival, Athens GA
- Charles Judson, Programmer & Industry Outreach, Atlanta Film Festival
- Pam Kohn, Former Director, Robert Osborne Classic Film Festival, Athens GA
