PRLog - Feb. 5, 2013 - (Atlanta, Georgia) - February 5, 2013 - It’s confirmed. The powerhouse team of Tracey Baker-Simmons & Wanda Shelley will be two of the panelist speaking at this year’s Women In Film & Television Atlanta (WIFTA) Kickoff on February 21, 2013. Super Producers Baker-Simmons and Shelley are the perfect pair to lead off the panel. The duo, which was nominated for a Southeast Regional Emmy in 2010 for the reality TV show Keith Sweat’s PLATINUM HOUSE, will be two of the speaking on this year’s Kickoff theme topic: The Real Deal On Reality TV.

Baker-Simmons & Shelley, along with several other reality TV veterans, will guide the audience through the ins and outs of the phenomenon of reality television. They will answer important questions such as: Is reality a viable career? What are the opportunities and how much money can you make? What are the consequences of the images we're putting out there? Do we, as viewers, need to take responsibility? Can more positive images be put on the airwaves in this medium? Who’s making the millions in Reality TV?

In addition to the 2013 WIFTA Kickoff being a great platform to learn about the reality TV scene in Georgia and beyond, it is also an opportunity for all attendees to meet the new WIFTA Board of Directors, find out about upcoming WIFTA activities and learn how to become more involved in Georgia's film and television industry! Those looking to become members can also join WIFTA during the Annual Kickoff celebration.

The 2013 WIFTA Kickoff will get underway Thursday February 21, 2013 at Aurum Lounge 915 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA. WIFTA members may attend for free; the cost for non-members is $20.00. Since space is limited, RSVP and advance ticket purchase online at http://www.wifta.org/events is recommended because this is an industry event you won’t want to miss it!
