Filmmaker Focus 2021

Film lovers who want a behind-the-scenes look at filmmaking are invited to attend the opening event on Friday evening, “Developing Film.”  The Nickelodeon will screen award-winning films from South Carolina’s DOKO film festival, which showcases the best in high school filmmaking. Local indie filmmakers will then have an opportunity to share “work in progress” films and solicit feedback from both the audience and other filmmakers. 

Filmmakers who are ready to take their craft to the next level and hone their skills are invited to participate in a full day of workshops on Saturday, May 15. The workshops will focus on production topics such as budgeting, working with casting directors, self-distribution of indie films, and selecting the right festival to showcase a film.
