(released 7/28/2013)


Notable filmmakers and casting directors will discuss the process of independent filmmaking at "Made in NY" Talks: Excellence in Indie Filmmaking on August 13th, 2013. The event will be held at the Baruch Performing Arts Center- Engelman Recital Hall Theater (55 Lexington Avenue) and is free and open to the public.

The gathering will be filmed for both the SAG Foundation's online educational archives and for broadcast on NYC Life (Channel 25). The captured event will also be available to view on the NYC Media Video on Demand Player at nyc.gov/vod.

"Made in NY" Talk is co-presented by the NYC Mayor's Office of Media & Entertainment and the Screen Actors Guild Foundation.

The panelists, subject to change, are currently to include Director Ira Glass (Keep the Lights On, Married Life), Casting Director Paul Schnee (New York, I Love You; The Help), and director Rashaad Ernesto Green (Gun Hill Road). It is anticipated that more panelists will be confirmed. The experiences that the panelists share of filmmaking and New York as a favorite place to bring about their visions will be the topic of discussion.
