For New York and LA-based productions, many filmmakers are tapping into their own network of support, relying on their own local community. But what if you’re working in Biloxi, Raleigh-Durham, or Minneapolis? How do you create a new local network? And if you stay close to home, believe it or not, there are other benefits, aside from getting to sleep in your own bed. Hear from state film commissions, regional distribution tours, and filmmakers working in and outside of the American filmmaking hubs about how they’re making films happen. We’ll discuss production incentives, local vendors and support services, and experienced cast and crew; in other words, how to build and sustain a supportive community with whom you can both create and work.
