Cast & Crew Call – Make a Movie This Summer – 14th “Place Called Sacramento” Film Project


  For the 14th year, Access Sacramento launches “A Place Called Sacramento” (PCS), a scriptwriting and short film production project for local writers and producers. PCS challenges local scriptwriters to write ten-minute scripts about the people, places, and events that make our community such a unique place to live (entry guidelines on-line at www.AccessSacramento.org). The PCS production format is unique to Sacramento. All PCS scripts entered are reviewed by local professionals and ten are selected. All ages are welcomed to get involved – both experienced filmmakers and newbies are welcome to attend.

These ten scriptwriter/producers are introduced to actors and production teams at The PCS “Cast and Crew Call” Wednesday, May 22, 2013. Production teams are formed and production commences. The teams are formed at 6 PM in the "backyard" of the Coloma Community Center 4623 T Street. Bring pictures, background information, resumes, or just bring yourself and friends.

Finally, friends gather at the 1:00 PM World Premiere to a packed house at the CREST Theatre on Sunday, October 6, 2013. To view the films completed for the 2012 & previous PCS film festivals, go to the web site www.AccessSacramento.org or www.AccessLocal.tv

In the thirteen years of PCS, 129 short films have been created. Access Sacramento is a nonprofit, using community media tools and training, to improve local communications in Sacramento County. With our television studio, radio and television production equipment, media lab, mobile production truck, and other gear, we train volunteers and share their work on cable radio and television channels 17 & 18.
