Live Event: Film Projects That Build Community

All stories are local, but Hollywood rarely does right by them. Too often, when portrayed on the big screen, stereotypes and contrived storylines trump the truth of living in a place. The July/August 2013 issue of Orion discusses the regional films of Jay Craven (“On Location“), whose projects tell such stories, and most importantly, are produced and screened in their home region. Craven was joined in discussion by the founders of a film project that tells the stories of a single town.
