IN MAY, WE ARE CANCELING THE APOCALYPSE!
Shatterdome Atlanta is a fan-run celebration of the 2013 film Pacific Rim, which was directed by Guillermo del Toro, written by Travis Beacham, and starred Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, and Idris Elba (among many other wonderful performances). We will have discussion panels and other cool programming as well as an Artist Alley, Pacific Rim costumes, and more. We are excited to get together with other fans to share our love of this amazing film!

When & Where
The success of the meetup and photoshoot we organized at Dragon Con 2013 inspired us to dream big and have a focused get-together for fans of Pacific Rim. The members of the executive committee have over 35 total years of convention staff experience, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to come together with other fans to celebrate Pacific Rim.
All monies raised will go directly to our operating expenses, including hotel conference space rental, program and badge printing costs, audiovisual equipment rental, and the like, as well as the purchase of rewards (shirts, stickers, etc.). We are an entirely volunteer-run convention -- even our executive committee members are purchasing memberships. Your membership funds are vital to helping make the convention a success and ensuring that all attendees have an amazing experience.
