THIS MONTH’s SPEAKERS

Tim Hall – Director, Writer, Producer “Born River Bye”
Tim Hall is a native of Macon, Georgia. He graduated from the School of Filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He directed his first feature length film in 2011, entitled, “Ordinary Wilderness,” which debuted at the 2012 Philadelphia Independent Film Festival. In 2015, he directed his second feature film, “Born River Bye,” which was shot on location in Macon and will debut at the 2017 Atlanta Film Festival. He lives in Atlanta with his wife and son.

Born River Bye
Two childhood friends – Scott and Laura – reunite in their sleepy hometown as they each face a crossroads in their lives. Both feel superior to those around them, and yet experience an overwhelming unhappiness with their choices. As the days unfold, Scott and Laura begin to turn a new leaf, forgiving themselves for their past, making amends, and looking to their futures with renewed optimism.

Friday, March 30, 2017, 9:30 PM — 7 Stages Theatre, Main

 

Fran Burst-Terranella – Director, Producer “The 12 Lives of Sissy Carlyle”
Fran’s film and television work spans 4 decades, encompasses over 700 productions and has earned more than 100 honors and awards. Her documentaries have aired nationally on ABC, TBS and PBS and “The 12 Lives of Sissy Carlyle” is her debut feature film. Fran found her storytelling medium in college film studies at Harvard, Rice and the University of Texas/Austin where she became the first woman to direct a film as her Master’s Thesis.  A founding member of WIFTA and Atlanta Film Society, Fran served as co-president of the Georgia Production Partnership during passage of Georgia’s entertainment tax incentive in 2008.

The 12 Lives of Sissy Carlyle
Stranded in a life she didn’t choose, a shy writer yearns for an exciting life as she fills secret journals with daring fantasy adventures. A chance encounter with an intriguing young performance artist leads Sissy Carlyle to a crossroad – will she remain safely cocooned in the exciting fantasy lives in her journals or venture out and discover what her real life might become?
