    WIFT-FL DAYTONA BRANCH MEETS ON THE 1st Wednesday of Every Month!


    Location: The HUB on Canal

    Address132 Canal St, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168

    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.

    ADOBE PREMIERE WORKSHOP

    CLASS PROVIDED BY:


    WIFT-FL is in the process of developing a training program with the Melrose Center. We are hoping that we can develop a working relationship providing training for our members on an “on going” basis, using their facility, equipment and instructors. As part of the agreement we will promote the center on our social media so our members can sign up and attend their programs. The centers policy is that it will provide free training to all our members who live in Orange County. For Members who live outside Orange County there will be a charge of $10. per program Members may sign up on their own at any time for any class. This program is a work in progress and we are going to conduct a trial training program during our 3 rd Training Event Qtr. The following is the program details:

    • Due to center policies we will have only 10 seats available per class
    • All classes will be free to members selected (all county residents) .
    • Members wishing to sign up for a seat must sign up during the sign up period (TBA)
    • Members who sign up will be selected by lottery and informed of their selection. If a vacancy occurs, the next on the list will be selected.
    • Remember, this is our first trial program with these classes and we encourage our members to review the centers programs and sign up for other programs on their own.
