Atlanta has truly become a hub for some of the most prominent game players in film and entertainment. Everyday a new project is born and one amazing Atlanta spot is highlighting the best and brightest of those indie filmmakers–Screening Room Atlanta!

Set in Negril Village Atlanta’s second level room for private parties, Screening Room ATL takes place every Wednesday and is hosted by Christopher Allison and the lovely Khalimah Gaston! Khalimah is a rising star and amazing actress who you may remember from Signal 23 TV’s Steel River, among other projects. This past Wednesday, for the second week in a row we found ourselves there enjoying some amazing people and delicious Caribbean food–we definitely recommend you try the Jerk Chicken plate with cabbage, plantains, rice and beans, YUM–and of course a few new films!

That night we saw three trailers for films entitled Vindictive and  F.A.M. and watched the first episode of the award winning hit web seriesTough Love. Vindictive is a bit of an action thriller with a Bourne Identity feel to it. The film stars Jarrett Michael Collins who also appears in a supernatural thriller called They. F.A.M. is rather endearing film about a blended family. A man tries raising his teenage daughter with the help of his wife and her mother, his childhood sweetheart. Naturally, there is a bit of family drama when he is in a tug of war between three women he loves and cares about.

Tough Love was the real jewel of the night, however. The web series details the lives and love lives of six millennials living in New York City. The various story lines and characters are all too believable and relatable, with a character everyone either knows or is. Check out the first episode of the series below:

Two of the series’ stars, actor and model, Travis Cure, and actress and singer, Meela Williams (702, R&B Divas Atlanta) made an appearance discussing not only their characters but their upcoming projects. Travis is set to appear in more series and campaigns while Meela is continuing work with various organizations that combat autism, a condition her son with Musiq Soulchild suffers from.

Screening Room ATL takes place EVERY Wednesday night and you can be sure that we will be there in the mix–networking, partying, and most of all updating you on the latest indie flicks to hit the scene. Be there, or be boring! Check out a few pictures from that night!

Bobby V had a lit listening party last night and thanks to Kontrol Magazine, our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning was in the building, with Web Star/actor, Chris June in tow. It all went down at W Hotel in Midtown Atlanta and we were there as Bobby sang a medley of the hits that made him famous and revealed his latest singles, Lil Bit, featuring Snoop Dogg, and Promise. The latter song is EVERYTHING! It is ballad he wrote for his daughter–yes, Bobby is “a daddy now” as he so humorously stated–and the lyrics, guitar, and chords are so catchy!

You can catch the official music video for Lil Bit below as well as listen to Promise:

However, one of the biggest surprises, and coolest moments, happened when he performed Blackberry Molasses with his former group members from Mista. Check out a snippet of it below:

We have to say we are glad Bobby V is back and giving us some much needed and authentic R&B. Check out the track list from Electrik below and you can purchase it everywhere this Friday, March 9th! Tell us what you think of the new singles and album overall in our comments section below! Happy Listening! Good job Bobby!
