Looking Ahead

Planning is underway for upcoming meetings.

Watch for a FILM event on several local filmmakers who have work that’s making it into Oscar qualifying festivals. 

Curious what it takes to make doc-style programs for broadcast, cable networks, web series or advocacy? We’ve got a TV event on our calendar! 

And VIDEO. Coming up - a day long Pro Camp on live streaming with demonstrations and guests from Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.

Sound exciting?  Now, we URGENTLY NEED NEW PEOPLE for our Board of Directors and as volunteers to get things off the ground. 

12 PEOPLE!  For a few hours per month. 

Consider being part of the team that relaunches our organization into what San Diego needs, building our FILM, VIDEO and TV community? 

We need your energy and ideas as we build momentum!
