ATLANTA - Aug. 26, 2013 - PRLog --  Women in Film & Television Atlanta (WIFTA) is in full preparation for the celebration of the 39th WIFTA Anniversary Gala and Award ceremony on October 20, 2013 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.  This year's ceremony is a list of who's who within our industry.

WIFTA is proud to release the name of the Outstanding Contribution - Individual Award honoree, Jennifer Brett, Access Atlanta The Buzz Columnist.

Jennifer Brett is dedicated to giving Atlanta the most up to date information about the growing film industry in metro Atlanta. An accomplished journalist and blogger, she is keeping Atlantans plugged in by sharing her “insider information” via her Access Atlanta column, appropriately named The Buzz. Brett, an unique journalist, is known for dividing her attention equally to covering the major Hollywood studio films that are shooting in or have ties to Georgia as well as the independent productions that are shot here. This is exceptionally commendable, given the high number of quality, popular independent productions that are produced in Georgia. 

In 2009 she was named one of Georgia Trend's, 40 Under 40 honorees. Brett has been seen on CNN and HLN and has been heard on countless radio programs throughout Georgia.
