From a producer’s point of view, what does it take to bring a multimillion dollar production to Upstate New York? What are the challenges, the attractions, who is the competition, what makes it work? Producer Chris Bongirne (Marshall, Bashira), currently at work on his third feature shooting Upstate, talks with NY State Film Office Executive Director Gigi Semone about his experiences on the films he’s brought Upstate, and his perspective on why more filmmakers today are making the trip. Conversation will be held in the lobby of Little 1 (enter from East Avenue). FREE admission.
