For the third year in a row, we are amazed by the incredible talent we have here in the Central Valley. We received over 75 applications from Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kings, and Tulare counties. Ten grants of $5,000 were awarded to local filmmakers to produce mini-documentaries about life in the Central Valley; stories that shine a light on the incredible people and places that make our region so extraordinary.
These mini-docs will premiere on Friday, October 25th at 7:00 p.m. at the Tower Theatre.
We are so grateful to Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) for their partnership on The Big Tell. All local and aspiring filmmakers can become members of CMAC for access to training and tools including production studio, private editing suites, meeting rooms, classroom space, and a computer lab, along with a variety of portable production gear.
