Atlanta Film Society presents New Mavericks
Presented by the Atlanta Film Society, New Mavericks supports women involved in various aspects of the Atlanta film community to achieve a strong voice in the local industry.
Do you write, produce or direct? Do you edit, shoot or animate? Maybe you want to be a gaffer, an AC or a grip? The ATLFS New Mavericks programming is evolving to highlight female excellence, as well as delve into the craft of filmmaking disciplines both above and below the line. Each quarter will focus on a department in the industry and will feature screenings, salon series, hands-on-workshops, and networking opportunities.
