The Atlanta Film Festival’s Sound + Vision

The Goatfarm, 1200 Foster St. (Westside)

Usually, when we think of Film Festivals we think of quiet, contemplative audiences bewitched by the silver screen for hours upon hours of viewings – a panel or Q&A peppered in-between. Such is not the case with the Atlanta Film Festival's Sound+Vision. Prepare for an evening of film and revelry that turns typical film fare on its head. This year's event includes music videos from acts such as Pussy Riot and Coast Gaard as well as experimental film from Brock Scott, Medelline Moore and Oktawian Otlewsi. Food trucks, beverages and musical performances will be stippled around the grounds between projections.

Down South Camp Meeting

Various Locations

Always wanted to try a hand at swing dancing, but couldn’t muster up the courage or know where to start? Live out your Dirty Dancing dreams at this weekend’s Down South Camp Meeting. Chock-full of traditional (and less traditional) classes, live music and – of course – dancing. Have two left feet? Don't worry – the fest has opportunities for the avidly footloose as well as the slightly inept. (Hey, we all have to start somewhere.)
