SAG-AFTRA New England

SAG-AFTRA New England has a new contract designed specifically for local commercials. The Regional Commercials Code has reduced buyout rates and an simpler sign-on process to make it easier and less expensive to hire professional talent for your made-in, played-in spots. Learn more from SAG-AFTRA members and staff on how to put this to use in your productions. 

Member Spotlight: The Film Posse

Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart is the first feature documentary about Lorraine Hansberry, the artist/activist best known for writing the groundbreaking play A Raisin in the Sun. Produced over the course of 14 years by Tracy Heather Strain (director) and Randall MacLowry (editor) at their Fort Point Channel based company, The Film Posse, the documentary makes its television debut on PBS biography series American Masters on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 9pm/8c.
 

Producing for Social Impact

Audiences look to storytellers for the unique power of films and media to inspire and inform. Whether highlighting issues to advance awareness, shape policy, or spark conversation – now more than ever producers, distributors, and publishers are making a commitment to deliver stories that need our attention. We'll speak with some of our members who are producing for social impact and who's work has the power to amplify important messages and inspire change.
