In an email received this morning, September 22, 2014, it was announced that the South Central Michigan Film Alliance will host a pre-Christmas Michigan film industry get together. This event, slated for December 6, 2014 will be held at the soon to reopen Albion Bohm Theater. The Bohm Theater has undergone a $4 million restoration/updating. Presently, in preparation for this event the SCM Film Alliance is looking for qualified speakers to address attendees on matters regarding Michigan’s film industry.
Do you know of Michigan speakers who would like to give a speech/make a presentation at our upcoming film award show/film summit?
Scheduled for December 6, 2014, we are interested in Michigan based speakers who can possibly talk about Michigan’s film incentives, the future of Michigan’s film industry, tips on how to become involved in Michigan’s film industry, etc. All ideas and opinions are welcome.
This event will be held at the newly reopened, fully restored Bohm Theater in Albion, Michigan. (Here are recent photos of the Bohm Theater ) When completed, this restoration would have cost close to $4 million. The Bohm will be the crown jewel of the Albion area. It will seat 400 people with reserved seating complete with tables and wet bar in the balcony; and general seating in on the main. The Bohm is completely ADA compliant.
This will be an agenda free get together for Michigan’s film industry. We are excited about the reopening of this historic theater which will after January 1st, 2015 become a home for Michigan films and film community and think it would be a great place to gather, meet other members of Michigan’s film industry, talk freely and make new friends.
We have chosen December 6 for this occasion as the theater will be fully opened by then, many members of the Michigan film community will have returned from the AFM with stories regarding their experiences to share, those who have merchandise to sell (and all are welcome) can sell it prior to Christmas, and we might (if this gathering is so inclined) talk of plans for the coming new year.
We would also like to take some time to thank the people in the Michigan film community who have contributed in some way to our film community as nominated by their friends and associates.
If you know of any one who would like to speak, have them give us a call. Thanking you in advance. Hope to see you there.
