ATLANTA, GA — The 41st annual Atlanta Film Festival is pleased to announce the 2017 SOUND+VISION event, which will return for its sixth year. The signature mid-week event will move to 787 Windsor, a converted steam boiler manufacturing facility that was transformed into an eclectic, arts-centric space for Atlanta’s creative community, on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 7:00PM.
The unique celebration of film, art, music and food has quickly become a staple annual event for ATLFF, with previous year’s events taking place at Atlanta landmarks like The Goat Farm and Ponce City Market. As in past years, the 2017 SOUND+VISION event will combine cinema with art, music and food to create an unforgettable evening, paying homage to Atlanta’s ever-growing arts community. The event will feature live music, daring experimental films, bold and mesmerizing art installations, and some of the best bites the city has to offer.
This year’s event will highlight exhibitions from artistic masterminds, such as: Alessandra Hoshor, Cass Cameron, Dylan Mulshine, Evan D’elia, Eva Nelson, House of June, Kris Pilcher, Natalie Escobar, Rebecca Shenfeld, Sloane Hilton, Wihro Kim, among others. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to experience live stage performances by Xavier BLK and Yung Baby Tate, as well as Tank and the Bangas and Loonie Holley + Special Guest.
As visual art, film and music converge to stimulate the eyes and ears, street food from some of Atlanta’s most popular food trucks will be on-site to bring the event full circle – creating an extraordinary sensory experience that is sure to distinguish the 2017 festival. Additional artist participation and stage performances will be announced on the festival’s website leading up to the event.
