FILM INDUSTRY DAY @ THE NC LEGISLATURE is June 4, 2014 from 9am to 1pm. This is not a rally, rather a one on one discussion with some legislators. The most important people that need to attend this special day in Raleigh are the SMALL BUSINESSES who do business with the film industry. It is important to let those legislators know what would happen to you, your family, your employees and your business if the film industry went away. We need to let them know it is not just about crew jobs, but it is also about our community. If you are a small business that benefits from the industry being here, please email NCFilmDay@gmail.com Please, pass this on to all the small business friends you know.
