Canton Film Fest is ON

The Canton Film Festival 2014 kicked off last night, and if Facebook and Twitter are any indication, it was a huge success! Don't forget that we've go a lot in store tonight, including a chat with filmmaker Erin Brown, a presentation by because I said I would. founder Alex Sheen, an anti-bullying rally with a screening of the film Bully, and a drum circle with Stomp cast member Elec Simon.

And don't forget that tomorrow's a big day, with meet & greets with Brannon Braga and Bruno Gunn, as well as many, many film shorts by independent directors! 

Tonight's events are free, so get out here and have fun! (And don't forget to get your tickets for tomorrow's events!)

Canton Film Festival Guest: Erin Brown

Something the Canton Film Festival is starting this year is something we like to call the Up-and-Comer Series. For this series, we choose a filmmaker who is gaining national recognition and have him or her speak about the journey from humble beginnings to finally "making it." 

This year, Canton Film welcomes Erin Brown as our Up-and-Coming guest. Brown has worked as a writer, editor, producer, director, actress, art director, set decorator, and many other things in her eight-year career, so she knows filmmaking inside and out. She has worked with Sarah Silverman, Eminem, Zach Galifianakis, Reggie Watts,  and many other big names, and has done work for MTV, VH1, and ABC Family.

On Friday, October 3rd, at 3:30, Brown will join us at the Palace Theater to talk about her experiences in filmmaking and show a few of her shorts. This is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring filmmakers, as well as established regional filmmakers who want to know how to expand into the national market, to learn from someone who's been there.

Join us and learn from a pro!
