“Our local entertainment industry employs 100,000 New Yorkers and contributes $5 billion to our economy on an annual basis, and as we attract new production business to the City and create new jobs through the ‘Made in NY’ incentive program, we are working to ensure that a diverse group of New Yorkers have access to these positions, through programs such as this panel, said Katherine Oliver, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting.
Doors open at 2:30pm; the panel will begin at 3pm. Seating for the panel is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. The panel will take place at the St. George Theatre, 35 Hyatt Street, Staten Island, NY.
