SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Filling the Film Hub, Central New York film professionals were celebrating even more producers coming to the area.
The quarterly conference for the local film community was held at the Film Hub in Syracuse on Saturday. The free event was meant for networking and exploring new opportunities.
While the CNY Film Professionals have already seen plenty of growth over the past few years, it’s working to build even more jobs and economic activity.
“It’s very close to NYC and Toronto, Boston, and Philadelphia, so proximity also helps a lot. We also have all four seasons so a film that takes place in the winter or summer can shoot here,” said Elias Gwinn, President of CNY Film Professionals.
Right now ‘Paper Spiders’ is being filmed here locally. The producers are NYC based but hope to establish regular shoots in Central New York.
