It’s baaa-aaack! The amazing staff at The Atlanta Film Festival were kind enough to let us take over one of their 2017 festival nights and venue to help host the sequel to last year’s smash hit Poster Show + Mixtape Collaboration fundraiser with a new twist: MOVIES! And just like all sequels, there will be more action, more excitement, and more explosions (of creative output)!
Our carefully selected critics have curated a poster exhibition that will be on display during the festival to pay homage to our favorite movies! We invite you to walk the red carpet as a VIP to the Poster Show Part II: Art Director’s Cut, held on location at The Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge. We’ll celebrate Georgia’s booming film industry and our amazing design community in one extravaganza! Awards for Best Actor and Actress (just kidding….Audience’s Choice and Judges’ Favorites) will be given away and of course, all posters you see on the wall will also be for sale! All attendees will take home an event poster for free. Drinks will be available for purchase at the bar. (Just like an R-rated movie, must show ID.)
Here’s the best part: We invite everyone to come to our party for FREE! Space in the venue is limited so we ask that you pre-register to reserve your spot and so we know how many people to expect. When you register, please specify if you entered a poster into the Call for Entries.

Your “limo” driver can drop you off right at the front door! Seriously, there is very limited parking in the lot and around the neighborhood so carpooling or using your favorite ride sharing service is highly encouraged. If you are parking in the lot next to the Highland Inn, only park in the spaces labeled for the hotel, otherwise you will get booted!
