Filmmaker Roundtable scheduled for June 7

(Concord, NH) – The next New Hampshire Filmmaker Roundtable, presented by the New Hampshire Film and Television Office, will take place on Thursday, June 7 from 12-3 p.m. at the Granite Media Center, 100 Autumn Drive in Tilton.

In addition to an update from the New Hampshire Film and Television Office, there will be a discussion focusing on synergy within New Hampshire’s film and television industry. The industry is growing, and as we discover more and more production crew and services in the state, synergy and cooperation within New Hampshire’s film and television industry becomes a vital part of its infrastructure - and the cornerstone to promoting New Hampshire as a film-friendly destination.

Industry professionals are invited to attend this networking event and tour the Granite Media Center, the new production facility in Tilton, New Hampshire. From a screening room with state of the art digital projection to office suites housing composers, photographers and other production personnel; from acres of camera-ready land outside to a clear span big box inside, the Granite Media Center is a place where multiple facets of production can come together - to work together.

“These roundtables are a great opportunity for New Hampshire’s film and television industry to connect not only with the film office but with each other,” says Van McLeod, Commissioner of the Department of Cultural Resources.

“It’s fitting that we hold our next roundtable at the Granite Media Center,” says Matthew Newton, Film Specialist managing the New Hampshire Film and Television Office. “This gives us a chance to meet face-to-face with members of our industry and provide them with first-hand information in a setting that is all about fostering synergy between filmmakers and other production services.”

The New Hampshire Filmmaker Roundtable is a lunch-hour gathering of the state's film industry professionals, amateurs and students. Attendees are encouraged to come B.Y.O.L. (Bring Your Own Lunch!) If members of New Hampshire's film industry are interested in attending, please RSVP by Monday, June 4 via e-mail at or by calling (603) 271-2220.
