The crowds and stars turned out for this year’s Atlanta Film Festival, which took place from March 20 – 29 at the historic Plaza Theatre, 7 Stages Theatre, The Rialto, The Woodruff Arts Center and The Fox Theatre.
This year’s event was another success and fans were more than happy at some of the special guests that attended, including James Franco and the cast of The Red Road, among may other notable attendees.
For those not familiar with the Atlanta Film Festival, it’s an Academy Award qualifying, international film festival held every spring in Atlanta, Georgia. The Accountant won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film in 2002 after qualifying at the 2001 Atlanta Film Festival, which goes to show that the films shown there aren’t to be overlooked.
