The show must go on for the Atlanta Film Festival. Their 44th annual event will take place this Thursday through Sept. 27. For the first time ever all of the films will be available online to stream. Movie drive-ins will also be available as a way to safely allow moviegoers the opportunity to watch from their vehicles.

Standout films this year include the documentary Fandango at the Wall, which follows fifty different musicians who gather at the Tijuana-San Diego border for a concert. Other notable films include “The Outside Story,” a comedy starring Brian Tyree Henry, and “In the Cold Dark Night.”

Director of programming, Alyssa Armand joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes to talk about the upcoming festival and the changes made to this year’s event.
