The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia,  hosted a preview screening of the Paradise Garden film on May 9th 2014. Despite the rain and traffic, the Museum had a full house of Folk Art enthusiasts.  Director, Ava Leigh Stewart, as well as Director of Photography, Jeremy Oliver Miller introduced the project. They explained that the film was made on a micro-budget through the kindness of film professionals and our cast donating their time to ensure the preservation of Howard Finster’s Legacy on film.  As Filmmakers, they felt like it was an important use of the film medium to try and preserve our artistic past.

Jordan Poole, the Executive Director of Paradise Garden invited all the attendees to a reception for the film following the screening event.   The Paradise Garden Foundation hosted a cocktail party at Rhodes Hall, in conjunction with the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. Jordan Poole, who also appears in the film, announced FinsterFest 2014.  This was the first film screening in Atlanta and the filmmakers were able to get valuable audience feedback from key players in making the film.    Stewart said in an interview with the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, “We have been working for so long to be able to finish the film and it is such a wonderful moment to be able to start sharing it with audiences.”  Please check our events section or “like” our Facebook page for the latest screenings and events.
