“Made in Winston-Salem” Film Series Set
Collaborative partners A/perture cinema, New Winston Museum and Piedmont Triad Film Commission are pleased to announce the arrival of the “Made in Winston-Salem” film and exhibit series premiering March 12, 2015. “Made in Winston-Salem” will include screenings of films and exhibits featuring information about films created in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County and will highlight the artistic and economic impact of local film productions on the community. This series facilitates dialogue between the community and the filmmakers, as well as encourages a renewed interest in the city/county as a setting for future film endeavors.
Made possible through an Innovative Project Grant from the Arts Council of Winston-Salem, the series will also feature interviews with some of the award-winning and renowned filmmakers who chose to set their films in the area, many of whom are Winston-Salem natives, residents, or products of local film schools. Winston-Salem is the star in this film series and attendees will receive a “Made in Winston-Salem Location Scouting Guide” featuring a map highlighting many of the local filming locations from each film.
