The 21st Annual Awards ceremony was live-streamed from the Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC) in Greeneville, Tennessee.

The organizers chose the unique location of NPAC in idyllic Greeneville, TN as the location for the 21st GTAs for a multitude of reasons. Said Evelyn Brady-Watters, co-founder of the GTAs, “The show must go on, however with Los Angeles still under Covid restrictions, we set our sights on NPAC, a state of the art theatre in Greeneville, TN, a region with a rich cultural heritage, bountiful spirits and a burgeoning new tech sector — we are excited for our show to be live-streamed from ‘Distillicon Valley’ this year!”

Sisters Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady founded the GTAs to recognize the incredibly talented professionals who created the trailers and film marketing; the unsung heroes of the entertainment industry, whose great works fuels the movie and streaming business yet largely remain anonymous.

Said Brady-Watters, “This year, we are also dedicating GTA21 as a tribute to all the unsung heroes in healthcare, food service, transportation, emergency services, and more who went to work (while we stayed home streaming) and kept us all going. We offer our sincerest gratitude and a night to enjoy a fun night of entertainment.”
