Atlanta Film Festival was the first I attended in 1990.  These were sometimes held twice a year, spring and fall. 
1995 was the last film festival held in Atlanta by Charles Sharpe.  The guest stars included Paul Peterson, Buffalo Bob Smith and Howdy Doody, John Hart, Jan Merlin and others. Here are a few photos from that and other Atlanta Film Festivals.

The Atlanta Film Festival was produced by Charles Sharpe of Sharpeco Distributors.  These were held from the 1980's up until the mid 1990's.
The first one I attended was in 1989 where I first met Lash LaRue as well as Jock Mahoney.  The last one was held in 1995.

We really hated to see the Atlanta Film Festival come to an end.
