In the current issue of NewEnglandFilm.com is a report by Randy Steinberg on the first Boston Filmmakers Expo hosted by Filmmakers Collaborative back in June. This event replaced their annual Open Studio, which I think worked out as a good alternative. I like the idea of gathering together in one place with other filmmakers to exchange ideas and build community. I enjoyed talking with vendors in the vendor table area, attending some seminars, and catching up with old friends during the reception. I hope they do it again next year.
