New Hampshire Film and Television Office holds industry roundtable

The New Hampshire Film and Television Office held its quarterly film industry roundtable on Thursday, June 12, 2008 at Red River Theatres in Concord with approximately fifty industry professionals, amateurs and students attending the three-hour networking event. The roundtable featured an update on recent initiatives by the Film and Television Office, including promoting the in-state production industry to upcoming political campaign ads shot in New Hampshire and encouraging state agencies to look to New Hampshire talent when producing television or web-based content. There was also a discussion about the new Red One digital video camera and the impact of digital technology on today’s film sets, as well as a productive dialogue on tax incentives for filmmakers and promoting what is already seen as “the New Hampshire advantage.” Attendees also had the opportunity to tour Red River Theatres and connect with other members of the state’s film and television industry. The next industry roundtable hosted by the New Hampshire Film and Television Office will be held on Wednesday, September 17, 2008 from 12-3 p.m. with the location of the event to be announced shortly.
