This Special Edition Eat, Drink & B-Indie is presented by #ATLFS as part of the Telluride Mountainfilm on Tour ATL | 2016. For details on September's film networking event, visit Eat, Drink & B-Indie: Roll the Tax Credits.

Join us on Saturday, August 27th, from 5pm-6pm at Highland Ballroom for a special presentation on the benefits of maintaining an eco-friendly film set. The presentation will be led by Green Consultant and Executive Director of Sustainable Entertainment Production Alliance, Micheline Birkhead. Micheline, who has worked on multiple independent film projects as a consultant, will discuss how practicing sustainability on set not only benefits the environment, but noticeably cuts costs on your production. 

Micheline will be joined by fellow Green Consultant Emellie O'Brien from New York-based Earth Angel. Emellie served as the Eco Advisor for many TV productions and films, including Spiderman 2.

The presentation will take place during a Mountainfilm Happy Hour at Highland Ballroom, so stay tuned for drink specials!
