The movies are coming and the Detroit Film Office is trying to make sure Detroiters and their businesses are ready to take advantage of the jobs and contracts that come with them. One of the first steps is a free filmmakers round table on Thursday at the Northwest Activities Center.
"It's an educational symposium," says Stephanie Milledge, director of the Detroit Film Office.
"We're targeting citizens and residents of the city of Detroit and the metropolitan area."
The event will feature panels of actors, caterers, casting directors and others who will speak about their experiences working on movie sets, how they got their jobs and what was expected of them.
"They will explain what has worked for them," Milledge says.The event is from 5-8 p.m. March 19 at the Northwest Activities Center, 18100 Meyers.
