The global ambitions of Georgia’s emerging filmmakers were front and center at the World Affairs Council of Young Leaders event “Reeling Out Georgia Film to the World” held on Aug. 9 in Buckhead.

Panelist Sheoyki Jones, senior manager of Creative Industries at the city’s economic development agency Invest Atlanta, said that her associates attended the 2018 Cannes Film Festival in France and successfully encouraged international production companies to film in Georgia.

The panel was moderated by Susanna Spiccia, the executive director of re:Imagine/ATL, a non-profit that provides Atlanta teenagers with mentorship opportunities and resources in film and digital media to build an ethnically diverse workforce.
