Posted By on Tue, Feb 21, 2012 at 2:46 PM

The 2012 Atlanta Film Festival offers a preview of coming attractions by announcing a handful of titles to be included this year. "This year's festival will have more movies with Georgia ties than any previous Atlanta Film Festival line-up," announces the press release. The titles in question include:
V/H/S, the found-footage, anthology-style horror film, featuring a chapter by David Bruckner (and a success at this year's Sundance Film Festival);
That's What She Said, a comedy starring Anne Heche, directed by Macon native Carrie Preston
John Portman: A Life in Building, about the famed architect and shaper of the Atlanta skyline;
AKA Blondie, a profile of the dancer, poet and all-around star attraction of the Clermont Lounge (see the trailer below); and
Hurry Up and Wait, a musical documentary about the locally-based alternative rock band Gringo Star.

The 36th Annual Atlanta Film Festival
runs March 23 — April 1 at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema, the Plaza Theatre, The Strand Theatre, The Goat Farm and other locations.
