Now here is an event I wish I could have participated in as a young girl. It’s a seminar for young filmmakers to sort of introduce them to the ins and outs of filmmaking and thereafter, technology and it’s impact on the industry and women in the forefront of filmmaking. There will be 5 women, I believe referred to as Girl Geeks from various aspects of the industry participating and co-paneling the event. The event is slotted for October 11, 2009 at 1p.m. at the Christopher B. Rafael Film Center. Tickets are $15.00
