Women in Film and Television Atlanta
Guided in 2010 by Film and Television Industry Top Professionals

ATLANTA — Women in Film and Television Atlanta’s (WIFTA) 2010 Advisory Board reads like a “Who’s Who in the Georgia Film Community.” For nearly 36 years, WIFTA has been one of the leading non-profit professional organizations in Georgia dedicated to improving the status and portrayal of women in film, video, and other screen-based media. This would not be possible if not for affiliations and relationships developed over the years with top industry professionals.

Helping to guide WIFTA in 2010 are advisory board members: Casting Director and GPP Governmental Affairs Chairwoman Shay Bentley-Griffin; Video Progressions, Inc. Producer and CEO Adair Simon; Symmetry Entertainment Freelance Producer Angi Bones; Media Consultant, Producer and Writer Deidre McDonald; YourAct Studios Co-Owner/Acting Instructor Della Cole; Burst Video/Film, Inc. Director and Producer Dr. Fran Burst-Terranella; Digital Arts & Entertainment at Georgia State University Associate Professor/Co-Dir. Dr. Kay Beck; Houghton Talent Agency Director Mystie Buice; Williams, Turner & Mathis Inc. Insurance Agent Lynn Mathis; Echota Films Writer R Kay Butler; WXIA/WATL-TV VP of Community Relations Sheryl Riley Gripper; Worldwide Marketing Universal Pictures Retired, Exec VP Simon Kornblit; and Salt Run Productions, Inc. President Suzan Satterfield.

“Each of these outstanding men and women volunteer their time, advice and resources to help WIFTA continue to maintain a high level of professionalism that we have been known for over our 30 plus years,” Dana Serby, WIFTA President said. “Without their support we would only be another group. Their expertise within the film and television community for directing, producing, editing, acting, casting, and distributing brings our organization to a whole different level. It allows us to offer mentorships and programs for members to gain advice from experts who have been there before and know what it takes to succeed.”
