Carolina Film Network’s monthly meetings return Tuesday, January 31st opening up a bright new year of film here in the Carolinas. Joining us as guest speakers are Carolina Filmworks owners and operators Leon Dunn and Fred De La Garza. Both Dunn and De La Garza will lead the discussion on what a production company is, how to successfully operate a production company, their accomplishments, and future projects produced at Carolina Filmworks. They will also discuss the difference between a production company and a one-man producer operating under the name of a production company.
Carolina Filmworks has produced films worldwide, including the more recent Sinners and Saints starring Sean Patrick Flanery and Daylight’s End starring Lance Henriksen. Carolina Filmworks operates out of Charlotte, North Carolina.
As we discussed at the November Meeting, January will kick off the start of the First Annual Carolina Film Network Film Festival. As per usual, the meeting will begin by screening three to four films. Afterwards the audience will vote on their favorite film for the Audience Choice Award.
The Audience Choice Winners from each month will then screen at the quarterly meeting. Where again it will compete for the Audience Choice Award for the quarter. The winner of the Quarterly Audience Choice Award will then screen in December at the 1st Annual Carolina Film Network Film Festival.
