Florida Film Network General Meeting
(Tampa, FL) The newly formed Florida Film Network, based in the Tampa Bay Area, will hold its first General Meeting on Wednesday, May 23 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the Art Institute of Tampa, 4401 N. Himes Avenue in the atrium.
FFN President Daniel Brienza said that all consecutive General Meetings will be held at that location and time on the fourth Wednesday of every month.
The new organization plans to have a production website up shortly that will list actors and crew available throughout Florida. It also will feature film contests, offer exclusive casting calls, industry workshops and seminars for its growing membership.
The Florida Film Network grew out of the earlier successful Tampa Film Network, which was founded in 2005 by veteran film producers Daniel Brienza and Joe Davison. Recently given a name change, Florida Film Network’s mission is to create opportunities for the Florida film industry, offer networking opportunities, education programs, resources, and events in an ongoing effort to build a bigger, more successful film industry in Florida.
Members will be able to make industry contacts, find jobs, cast films, and attend film education workshops and classes, whether in person or online.
“In addition, we will provide opportunities for people new to the business to get experience. We will offer such events as film challenges, festivals, and other fun ways to grow your personal and professional network,’ Brienza said.
He said that the new website will provide a very detailed profile for members. It will include members’ experience, filmography resumes, and the actors’ physical attributes that casting agents use. And, they will have a profile to allow them to attract new work or new collaborators.
Those working closely in committee with Brienza in moving the new association forward are Giovanni Ginnetti, Evan Smith, Joe Davison, Alla Grach, Aris, Donald Rua, Ellen Schnur, Ashlie Dawn Stevens and Miriam Goodspeed.
