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!
