Terrence Howard, Mindy Kaling, and More Turn Out For aTVfest (PHOTOS)


Can you imagine the unusual (and amazing) combo of Mindy Kaling, Terrence Howard, and Shane West all being in one place? Does this sound like something from a dream? Then you should have been at aTVfest between February 5-7. The television festival was held in Atlanta, Georgia by Savannah College of Art and Design over the weekend, and some of today’s biggest stars and producers turned out to discuss all things TV.

The three-day event featured screenings and panels for some of your favorite shows, including FOX’s Empire, The Following, and The Mindy Project; ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder, HBO’s Girls, and WGN’s Salem. The celebs mentioned above were in attendance, along with the entire HTGAWM cast (minus Viola Davis, Alfred Enoch, and Billy Brown), Revenge alum Ashley Madekwe, Andrew Rannells, and many more.

And that wasn’t all! Terrence was also honored with the Spotlight Award, while the HTGAWM stars received the Rising Star Award during the festivities. Plus, SCAD also hosted discussions with many industry insiders, including Wetpaint Entertainment’s own Samantha Lear, who moderated the Reality TV panel. There were also panels for Nickelodeon, casting directors, TV journalists, and much more.
