My friend Ezra sends me this:
The Montreal Film Group's mission is to bring together Montreal film and TV folks who are eager to be part of a thriving - and growing - community. To do this, we promote networking and learning through a stimulating slate of events.
MFG members consist of film/TV producers, writers, directors, editors, animators, composers, PMs, actors, crew members, agents, news reporters, set designers, recent grads, and more. We create monthly opportunities to meet new people that go beyond the traditional cocktail party setting and vary in size and purpose: there are how-to nights, live interviews with industry personalities, small dinner parties, and more.
We have a considerable collection of useful links to share and often receive job openings to post. We like to promote local film screenings. We're currently securing industry sponsors who will offer discounts and other advantages to our members. We keep the group up to date by periodic email newsletters and through our website.
We invite you to learn more about us on our brand new website. There, you'll find more details about the events we organize, what we're all about, and who we are. It will take you mere seconds to become part of the group by signing up at the JOIN section the site, and it's free of charge. Sound too good to be true? It isn't. There's no catch.
Finally, we also invite you to please come out on Tuesday, January 31st for the official MFG 2006 Launch Party!
