Tireless local arts advocate WonderRoot made an impact this past year with its Generally Local, Mostly Independent Filmmakers Night. The quarterly series, screened at the Plaza, offers a salon-like atmosphere of filmmakers at a wide range of stages in their careers. The success of its first year of programming was amplified when the High Museum signed on to curate and screen a selection of films from the series. Running everything from experimental shorts that could have been on MTV in the '90s to locally produced sitcoms, this series has become the place to find the next generation of Atlanta's filmmakers. 1049 Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-873-1939. plazaatlanta.com. wonderroot.org.
