film forum 

The Sea to Sky Film Committee is bringing a stellar cast of film industry experts to Saturday’s free Community Film Forum at the Rainbow Theatre. The bill includes several keynote speakers such as Peter Mitchell, Director of the B.C. Film Commission; Tom Crowe, Manager of Community Affairs at the B.C. Film Commission; and the Manager of Production and Location Services for the B.C Film Commission, Mark DesRochers. Other keynote and panel speakers will include representatives from IATSE, the Film Council of Greater Victoria, the Campbell River Film & Broadcast Commission, the Vidatron Entertainment Group, a casting director, B.C Parks and local individuals and businesses involved in the film industry. Forum topics include, The Film Making Process; Your Home or Business as a Film Location; Education and Employment Opportunities; The Economic Impact of Filming in the Sea to Sky Corridor; Making the Sea to Sky Corridor a Film Friendly Location; and the Role of the Sea to Sky Film Committee. A question period will follow each session. Originally, two film forums were scheduled for both Squamish and Whistler, but have since been amalgamated to one expanded forum in Whistler. Those interested in attending are welcome to drop in and attend specific sessions or stay all day. The forum gets underway at 10 a.m. The Sea to Sky Corridor is considered one of the top film and television shooting locations in British Columbia. To provide an opportunity to educate and inform Sea to Sky Corridor residents of the benefits and impact of the film industry to this area, the Sea to Sky Film Committee has co-ordinated the Community Film Forum. For more information, or to register by phone, please contact the Sea to Sky Film Committee Office at 938-2775.
