Yesterday I purchased tickets for the 2011 Atlanta Film Festival. So far I have only selected one film I must see and that is “Everyday Sunshine- The Story of Fishbone“. I have always been a huge fan of the band and appreciate the influence they have had on current indie rock music.
There are so many awesome films in the series it will really be hard deciding on others. “The Start of Dreams”- a study of Atlanta’s own Kenny Leon. Existential beach party movie “Vacation” and the documentary “World Peace adn Other 4th Grade Achievements” which chronicles one teachers mission to open young students’ minds.

The festival takes place April 28th-May 7th and movies show at various theatres in the Atlanta area but most will play at Midtown Promenade.
