Atlanta, GA, April 11, 2011 – The Get Connected TV & Film Networking Event has hit the ceiling with over 900 attendees at March 2011 event and moves to new venue for networking among the movers and shakers in Atlanta’s entertainment industry.

Jones of Brand Nation.

In addition to gathering the industry in one place, Bailey also thought it was important to give the attendees a night of fun as well. Last month’s event offered a night in Las Vegas, provided by Avalanche Entertainment and Caesar’s Entertainment Group who gave away trips to one of their casino locations. Lucky winners Maritza Seda – Harrah’s Tunica, Harold Ray – New Orleans and Drew Peters – Las Vegas will enjoy a two night stay with accommodations. April 28, 2011’s event will highlight production studios Local studios will be in the building to hire crews and demonstrate the services they provide and current and upcoming projects will be discussed for opportunities to participate in.

April’s event is sponsored by the Gospel Music Channel (GMC). GMC is the uplifting destination where viewers go to be entertained, inspired and to feel good about the faith & family friendly values they cherish. Music, movies, dramas and comedies are the building blocks of the new GMC…It’s Uplifting Entertainment. GMC director of human resources will be seeking the following positions: production assistant, marketing assistant, affiliate marketing, manager affiliate, marketing coordinator, traffic coordinator, web design content coordinator and gmc is encouraging screen writers to visit http://abff.com/festival/talent-discovery/gmc-screenplay-competition.php now to sign up for the “Faith and Family Screenplay Competition”. And what is a social event without a raffle?

But like all great things the event is growing and will be moving to the Fox Sports Grill on April 28th to better accommodate the event. “I am excited about the change and very happy that Fox Sports Grill has opened their doors to us. Jennifer Tillis, Director of Sales and Events has been great in helping make April 28th another big day in the movement. I thank the Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant for their support and belief in the cause and will always be a part of the Get Connected family”, says Bailey.

As Get Connected moves into a bigger venue the experience gets better for the attendees including a film screening by an independent film maker, vending and catering spaces and a larger open floor plan. Independent film makers are encouraged to submit their films to getconnectedatlanta@gmail.com for consideration to be screened at a future Get Connected event.
