“Made in NY” Talks: Excellence in Indie Filmmaking


As a part of “Made in NY” Talks, a free series of conversations focused on jobs in the local entertainment industry, the NYC Mayor’s office of media & entertainment in partnership with Screen Actors Guild Foundation will present “Made in NY: Excellence in Indie Filmmaking” at 7 p.m., Aug. 13, at the Baruch Performing Arts Center. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will bring industry professionals from the world of independent film to share their experiences of bringing their individual voices to the screen.

The conversation will bring together a talented group of filmmakers and casting directors who have used New York City as the inspiration and setting for countless indie films as they discuss their careers and why New York City remains a favorite place to bring their artistic vision to life.  Moderated by first deputy commissioner Todd Asher, the panelists include director Ira Glass (Keep the Lights On, Married Life), casting director Paul Schnee (New York, I Love You; The Help), and director Rashaad Ernesto Green (Gun Hill Road) with more panelists yet to be confirmed.

The event is open to SAG-AFTRA and Actors’ Equity members as well as anyone in New York City interested in learning more about opportunities in the entertainment industry. This event will be filmed for the SAG Foundation’s online educational archives. It will also be broadcast on NYC life (Channel 25), part of the official network of the City of New York, and be available to watch on the NYC Media Video on Demand Player at nyc.gov/vod.
