BC’s Motion Picture Production Industry & the Global Pandemic in 2020: The Rear View & the Look Ahead

Dec 14, 2020 | Motion Picture, News

 
MPPIA is proud and fortunate to have such as stellar team on this fifth and final session of the year. Together, we expect to break down some of the local impacts of the global pandemic on our industry – the challenges, the fears, the fallout; the collaboration, community and adaptation; and the pivot to opportunities, education and recovery.
 
We are equally fortunate to be joined at the top of the event by our industry sector’s newly appointed partners/leaders in Provincial Government, The Honourable Melanie Mark, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture & Sport (TACS) as well as Parliamentary Secretary for Arts & Film, Bob D’Eith. This is a great opportunity for us to meet our new government partners, as well as have them hear from some of the key industry professionals who have helped lead economic recovery in production.
