Boston & Filmmaking
Boston is #3 on MovieMaker Magazine's 2004 list of Top 10 Cities for Moviemakers. Also listed in the article is the link to the new Massachusetts Film Bureau site at www.massfilmbureau.com. It also mentions the BFVF which has recently closed its doors and turned over its Film & Video Festival to the Film Shack in Roxbury. They'll be the new resource on workshops and networking, I guess.
Of note, The 13th Annual Massachusetts Awards Gala with proceeds to benefit the Massachusetts Film Bureau will be held this Sunday the 29th at The Wang on Tremont Street. Tickets are $150 and include viewing of the 76th Annual Academy Awards® on the big screen. With the $500 tickets, you get a better dinner and shmoozing with celebrities. For Further Information, call 617-523-8388 or visit the Film Bureau's website.
Too bad I hadn't known about this sooner. Oh well. Looks like I'll be checking out that site more often. ;-)
btw, I found the Bureau's link and the link to the article above at Virtual Boston.
