Film Education in the Queen City Showcase

  • 60 mins

Charlotte has a rich cultural history that breeds creativity in many areas. The Charlotte Film Festival is proud to bring to the Queen City a panel of organizations that are teaching filmmaking skills both locally and across the country. With the advent of digital media technologies and new approaches to cinematic storytelling, we will hear from organizers about how they are training the next generation of filmmakers and how they are impacting the film landscape.

This event is free and open-to-the-public, so invite your friends and family to come by!
