Film Chattanooga is holding its semi-annual Happy Hour event of Chattanooga Film Society members to take place at Easy Bistro and Bar in downtown Chattanooga. The gathering will be on Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 5-7 p.m.
Industry professionals and film lovers alike are encouraged to attend. The gathering is also open to non-members and students and there is no cost to attend. The purpose of the event is to promote networking among local film and television professionals.
"It may be surprising to some people that film and television production is a very viable growth industry in southeast Tennessee,” said Dave Porfiri, founder and president of the Chattanooga Film Society. “With the recent Harrison Ford movie, 42, millions of dollars were pumped into the local economy through jobs and procured services. For those currently working in film production or hoping to in the future, networking is of vital importance. A get-together like this is one of the best ways for those people to meet each other in a relaxed setting.“
Film Chattanooga, an initiative of the Chattanooga Film Society, promotes film production activity in Southeast Tennessee and aims to raise the professional standards for the film and television production community in the region.
