Georgia Production Partnership to Host Annual Industry Event
(ProNewsReport Editorial): – Atlanta, Georgia June 13, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Georgia Production Partnership (GPP) will host its annual Summer Industry Party (SIP) this month. This year’s theme is ‘Taste of Georgia Film Food Festival.’ The event will take place at Areu Brothers Studio located at 3133 Continental Colony Pkwy, Atlanta GA 30331 on Sunday, June 26 from 5-9 p.m. Early Bird tickets will be available until June 15: $50 for GPP members and $75 for non-members.
SIP is GPP’s largest fundraiser. “Our fundraising is critical to providing the funds we use to pay our lobbyist, educate lawmakers and make political contributions to support the production tax incentive,” notes Susan Moss, one of the board members of administration of GPP. “Post-COVID, this event will be the first opportunity for the industry to come out and celebrate the strength of our market.”
Hanna Brothers, a local business and presenting sponsor of SIP, will provide food for the event. “We’ve been working with movie studios, post-production companies and everything in between for several years now,” says Sharon Turner, director of sales and marketing at Hanna Brothers. “The movie tax incentive is one of the reasons Hanna Brothers owners Joe and Jim Hanna moved the company to Georgia more than seven years ago. of this event is a moment of closure for us.
The event will feature performances by Gwen Hughes and The Retro Kats. The group defines itself as “the knees of the bees of swing bands that bring back the pleasure of ragtime, combined with new interpretations of more contemporary music”.
GPP members encourage the public to support the organization’s mission – to educate the public about the film industry and focus on maintaining the film tax incentive in Georgia.
For more than 20 years, the organization has been instrumental in creating programs such as the Camera-Ready program and the first entertainment coalition responsible for creating the Georgia Tax Incentive. GPP plays a vital role in advocating for these programs and their importance: serving as the voice of Georgia’s film, television and digital media industry.
“SIP will provide an opportunity to see old friends face to face and make new ones while raising funds and awareness that we cannot be satisfied with the foundation of our industry, the tax incentive “Moss said.
