Atlanta Film Society Announces 2019 Page to Stage Finalists
Page to Stage is a premier competition and live screenplay reading geared toward promoting and lifting up Georgia screenwriters. The Atlanta film industry has seen major strides in production and post-production, but Georgians still lack enough established avenues to tell their own stories. In an effort to promote Georgia voices, the Atlanta Film Society is partnering with local industry members to put on an evening dedicated to developing Georgia writers. Atlanta Film Society is proud to announce the 2019 Page to Stage Finalists!
