Georgie attends the Atlanta Film Festival

It's been almost a year since we saw Georgie at any form of event and now we finally get to see her lovely face again.

Attending the screening of her new film The Sisterhood of Night, Georgie graced the red carpet at the Atlanta Film Festival on Friday, March 27. This is just one out of several festival screenings Sisterhood has had so far, and the first on Georgie appeared at. Joining her on the carpet was director Caryn Waechter, screenplay writer Marilyn Fu, and a few of her co-stars; actresses Kara Hayward, and Willa Cuthrell, and actor Evan Kuzma.

The Sisterhood of Night is set to release on April 10 for limited screenings across the US, and will also be released on VOD – for all our US readers: the film will be available on Amazon Instant Video. There is still no word about international release but we will keep all you non-US readers (such as ourselves) updated about any change.

All photos from the event can be found in our gallery.

Freestyle set to release The Sisterhood of Night

The Hollywood Reporter brought us rather exciting news this past Wednesday by publishing an article concerning the release of Georgie's new movie The Sisterhood of Night.

According to the article, Sisterhood had been picked up by the distributing company Freestyle Release, and has set the set a theatrical and VOD day-and-date release for later this year. This is not the first time Freestyle handles the distribution of a movie based on a Steven Millhauser short story; in 2006 they handled the release of The Illusionist which is based on Millhauser's story Eisenheim the Illusionist. In a released statement (also found in the THR's article) Freestyle's president Mark Borde called Sisterhood a bold independent film, and went on about how the it spotlights today's social media culture that plays on gossip and some of the unwanted consequences it can cause. It is rumoured that Sisterhood will have it's US premiere on April 10th, but we won't get an official announcement about the release until next month. International released will be handled by K5, but so far there are no information about any theatrical release overseas.

Also thanks to THR, we have two new stills of Georgie, both have been added to our gallery, as well as a still released by one of Sisterhood's production companies, Cine Mosaic.

In addition to these wonderful news we ever got two stills; one of Georgie and one groupshot of the girls, you can find them both in our gallery.

Perfect Sisters LA Premiere

As I'm sure you all now the premiere for Georgie's new movie Perfect Sisters was held yesterday in LA! This was the first premiere Georgie attended since 2011 and she did not disappoint, over the night we have been overflowed with pictures and videos from both the premiere and the press conference before. For the press conference Georgie wore a cute white and blue Topshop dress, but went for a little classier and chic style for the premiere, wearing a jacket and skirt by Mulberry and white Topshop top. Topping it all of with a classy bun and accessorised with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Mulbery heels. She looked absolutely gorgeous!

Georgie was joined on the red carpet by the director Stan Brooks and her co-stars Zoƫ Belkin and Jeffrey Ballard. Sadly Abigail Breslin did not attend. On top of everything there's a lot of news articles about the movie, sharing both new stills and new clips! I've added a new still of Georgie in our gallery and all the interviews and movie clips can be found over at Georgie Central's Youtube page. Hopefully we'll get more photos and interviews from the night so keep an eye out in our gallery!

Birthday Project 2014

Time really moves fast! It is now only four months left until Georgie turns 19 years old, and that means it's time to kick start our annual Birthday Project! As you might remember our first project was a scrapbook with your letter and edits that we sent to Georgie, last year we raised enough money to send her a necklace and a custom card. This year it's a little different though. This year we going with a little theme: things we love about Georgie Henley.

It sounds simple right? All you really have to do is send in a reason why you love Georgie. We do ask you to try to be original, don't just say you love her because of her smile or because she's a good actress. There's always something more to it, not only superficial things. Maybe you have a good memory that somehow connects with Georgie and that's why you like her, or maybe she inspired you in some way. Those are the things we want you to send in!

The deadline isn't until June (date will be announced later) so you will have plenty of time to think of something and send it in to us. There are multiple ways to send it to us. You can always leave it as a comment here or one of our other posts (but then make it clear that it's for the birthday project), you can post it on our Facebook wall or send it to us through our Twitter. Of course you can also send it to us via email, if so we ask you to send it to georgiehenleylife@yahoo.se and make sure that it's spelled correctly and has a .se and not .com.
We hope you guys send something in so we can give Georgie an awesome birthday gift!
