The AAFCA SYNERGY Program is a multi-city series of networking events where entertainment industry professionals can connect with their peers to forge positive, creative, and prosperous relationships. SYNERGY offers a luminous yet causal environment where liked-minded professionals can “Plant the seeds of opportunity.” In keeping with AAFCA’s mission, at each event, a special SYNERGY salute is given to an individual or company whose contributions impact the entertainment community. Previous recipients includes Tirrell Whittley and Nick Nelson (Liquid Soul); Peter Ramsey (“Rise of the Guardians”); Charles Humbard (Founder/CEO, UPtv); Roger Bobb (Bobbcat Films), Eric and Brett Dismuke - @Brett Dismuke (The Swirl Group), and Tyler Perry Studios producer Mark Swinton. Currently, SYNERGY events are held in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and New York City.



The African American Film Critics Association’s SYNERGY program provides an excellent environment where Atlanta’s growing entertainment community can network and foster productive relationships.

Atlanta’s every growing film & television community requires quality engagement opportunities that allow the local market industry professionals to connect and celebrate each others success. Gil Robertson and AAFCA’S SYNERGY events have filled this void in a dynamic and grand way. Thanks Gil and AAFCA for uplifting Atlanta as we continue to shine as the Hollywood of the South.
