WIFT-FL DAYTONA BRANCH MEETS ON THE 1st Wednesday of Every Month!
Location: The HUB on Canal
Time: 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM
February 7th event is FREE and OPEN TO ALL MEN AND WOMEN!
6pm-8pm at The Hub on Canal in beautiful New Smyrna Beach.
We had such a great discussion this month, we will let the critiques continue for February. #ThreeBillboards has won both the Golden Globe and SAG awards for best dramatic feature AND best female lead for Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman has won both honors for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell, and Lady Bird have also come in strong. The #DGA awards are Feb. 3, and #TheOscars will air on March 4th. Let's do a little networking and get talking about the films. Do you agree with the noms? Do you think a film or actor has been 'snubbed?' Do you find a nominated film 'overrated?' This is the crowd to air your opinion, we really hope to see you there!
We can also discus the pro-industry bills currently on the dockets (HB341 and SB 1606) in Tallahassee spotlighting an ever-green film support being sponsored by informed legislators and drafted by COMPASS http://compassflorida.org/
Parking is free, light snack and beverages provided, bring your cards and make some connections. We want to hear your voice! Feel free to tag and share on social media or forward on this email to your industry peers.
