Filmmakers, small businesses, industry professionals and everyone who enjoys learning, here's a chance to get some of those nagging legal and insurance questions answered and to perhaps build relationships for your project!

We've invited Atlanta entertainment attorney Bernard Coleman with Womble Carlyle, along with other industry experts to share valuable information and resources. Actors, this is a great opportunity to get noticed for upcoming projects. Bring plenty of business cards, headshots and resumes.

Depending on the time, we will allow everyone an opportunity to give a 30-sec intro and afterwards open the floor for networking, networking, and more networking! Light refreshments and snacks served.

See you then!
