#UPFRONT had the pleasure of attending and covering this week’s Media and VIP Reception for the 2017 BronzeLens Film Festival (BLFF). The mixer was held at Davidoff of Geneva (The Shops Buckhead Atlanta) and was hosted by BLFF’s Executive Producer Kathleen Bertrand, Artistic Director Deidre McDonald and Chairman of the Board Tirrell Whitley of Liquid Soul.

 

The season two opener of #UPFRONT airs tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. and features the cast of the documentary film "STEP" as well as the BronzeLens Film Festival.

"STEP" is a Sundance Film Festival winner that follows the lives of an all-female step team from the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women. These courageous girls are empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, as they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college. 

The BronzeLens Film Festival and the Morehouse College Department of Music have joined together to present an evening of music celebrating the music of our lives from the movies on Sunday, August 20 at 5:00 p.m..   This evening at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center features an assemblage of some of Atlanta’s best female vocalists including:   Kathleen Bertrand, Chandra Currelley, Julie Dexter, Pamela Dillard, Theresa Hightower, Brenda Nicole Moorer and Rhonda Thomas.
