Join a Film Incentives Legislation and Maine Media Makers Panel Discussion

Monday, May 10, 2021, from 7:00 – 8:30pm

The panel, moderated by MFA Advocacy Committee Chair Louise Rosen, consists of the bill’s legislative sponsor, Representative Suzanne Salisbury of Westbrook; the citizen advocates behind the bill, Erik Van Wyck and Daniel Stephenson; and a certified public accountant who specializes in film incentives, Irene Wachsler. They will break down the legislative jargon for you, field your questions about what it means for the Maine media industry, and guide you through the legislative process and how you can make your voice heard on this issue.

"We have been fortunate to have made two movies in Maine — The Way We Get By and Beneath The Harvest Sky.” Maine is a very special state in that there are so many options for locations. Given its size, you can travel to northern Maine, southern Maine, all along the coast, and tell a number of different stories in totally unique worlds with each film having very distinctive looks. The abundance of locations combined with the incredible generosity of the people and communities, make filmmaking in Maine a pure joy. We would not be filmmakers today without the support from the people of Maine and we will be forever grateful."

- Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet, The Way We Get By and Beneath the Harvest Sky

"Hands down, Karen Carberry Warhola in the Maine Film Office was the most supportive person I’ve ever spoken with, with any film project I’ve ever worked on."
