Atlanta Film Festival
From Friday, March 28 to Sunday, April 6, the 38th Annual Atlanta Film Festival will take place. Over 25,000 film lovers will gather in Atlanta for one of the largest and longest-running film festivals in the country.
It’s an exciting time for festival staff, including UGA alumna Ali Coad (BA '11), the Special Project Coordinator for the Festival. “We’re really excited about the quality of films this year, and propelling film making and the arts in our local community,” Coad said.
However, this Festival is not just for film makers. Throughout the Festival, there will be a wide range of films geared toward a variety of audiences.
Coad’s involvement with the Festival began last spring as a volunteer intern. Shortly after the Festival wrapped, she left her position at Crawford Media Services and moved to Austin, Texas for a position with the Austin Film Festival. She stayed in touch with staff from the Atlanta Film Festival and was notified when a staff position opened this January. As the Special Project Coordinator, Ali works closely with the Festival’s Executive Director, Chris Escobar, on fostering relations with sponsors and partners of the Festival.
Coad has always had a passion for writing, storytelling and films. Coad loves the collaborative nature of film making and the ability to use visuals to tell a story. She also enjoys working with the Festival because she gets to promote filmmaking while meeting people who share her love for the arts. “I love working in an environment where people are equally invested and passionate about what they’re doing,” she said.
After Coad’s work on the Festival wraps in April, she’ll begin working on another project that is close to her heart. She will begin training for a cross country cycling trip with Bike and Build this summer. Bike and Build is a non-profit organization that organizes cross-country cycling trips to raise money and bring awareness for affordable housing. From May to July, Coad will be riding with 32 other cyclist from Nags Head, North Carolina to San Diego, California.
