Motion Picture Industry Week Set to Launch on Friday November 13th
The Motion Picture Production Industry Association of British Columbia (MPPIA) is once again rallying the industry and its partners in production, government and BC communities to celebrate the Third Annual Motion Picture Industry Week in BC. With the Industry Week launch set for November 13, the week's events will take place November 16-19.
Motion Picture Industry Week is ‘Celebrating the Future of BC’s Creative Economy’ – showcasing the industry’s accomplishments and planning for the years ahead as media platforms converge to shape the future of the global entertainment sector. Industry Week pays tribute to the enormous collaboration among partners in the production community, in BC communities and in government that has been vital to the industry’s success to date. With an eye to the future, primary Industry Week themes this year include BCFC Locations Forum, the Reel Green environmental movement, industry career paths at Career Expo '09, a salute to BC filmmakers at a special screening event to be hosted by the First Weekend Club, and the week's activities will culminate in the Pacific Cinématèque's Gala event 'SCENE'. Charitable giving remains an important part of Industry Week to show appreciation for the cooperative role that BC communities play in the province's motion picture industry. With the Greater Vancouver Food Bank as MPPIA's charitable partner again in 2009, fundraising and 'food raising' will take place across industry locations throughout the month of November to ensure an ample contribution from the industry that will reach as many people as possible. Supporters are encouraged to go to www.foodbank.bc.ca to make their own contributions.
