The newly formed Humboldt Film and Digital Media Commission is holding a public meeting tonight to discuss state and the future of these arts in our region. The event starts at 5:30 PM at the Wharfinger Building. You can find details of the event on the Redwood Technology Consortium Calendar.

Update: There was a somewhat small but very enthusiastic turnout for this meeting. Of particular interest was a presentation by the folks putting on the upcoming Humboldt Film Festival. With a new venue, a whole lot more entries to choose from and some interesting judges it should be an exciting and eye opening event.

As for the Film and Digital Media Commission itself, it’s hard to know exactly where things will lead, but they seem to have a dedicated group with a vision for region as a center for film and digital media.
