We are pleased to announce that ATHfactor-Liberty Entertainment has partnered with Cine Athens to launch "It’s Bigger Than HipHop" Movie Series. Starting March 23rd Cine Athens will be playing a monthly HipHop movie (March selection TBA). These monthly movie selections will be accompanied by a variety of add-ons, such as music performances and/or panel discussions.

For the past 4 years, ATHfactor-Liberty Entertainment has successfully partnered with Cine Athens to bring the Athens community a HipHop showcase during ATHfest. With a brief history of successful events together, which include the Black Panther Red Carpet Mixer, everyone started to realize we had to do more together. Cine Athens is more than a movie theatre, it is a community space that brings film, art, and music together. And by bringing these arts together, bridges are built that will help bring our community closer together. So this event is about more than watching some classic HipHop movies and documentaries, it is about adding on to the foundation Athens HipHop is building. It is about people of many different backgrounds coming together and making Athens a better place to live for everyone. We hope that more than just the HipHop community comes and participates, we hope that everyone of all sectors of Athens comes out to enjoy, learn and help us build.

This movie series is just one of many events that ATHfactor-Liberty has planned with the support of Cine Athens. At the end of Women's History Month on March 30th, there will be an all-ages show and dance party to celebrate the woman of the Athens Community. We plan on closing out March with an all ladies event. Invitations will go out to women in business, government, education, community organizers; everyone is invited to celebrate the backbone of the Athens community. The soundtrack to this event will be provided by DJ Lodi Dodi, one of Athen’s only working lady DJ’s. The host, musical artists and everyone involved will be women of the Athens Community.

We look forward to continuing to expand our relationship with Cine Athens to bring Athens more events for the whole community to enjoy, learn and build.
