Cherokee Film Summit

Known for its vast array of locations, ease of permitting, variety of businesses and support services, and film-friendliness, it is easy to see why film teams find Cherokee to have what they call “production value.” Having local film professionals who live and work in our community can enrich our businesses, embolden our creative community, and encourage startups – proving that not only does the film community find production value in Cherokee, but it brings value, too.

Find out how all these pieces work together, and what part you can play in this multifaceted industry by joining us at the first-ever Cherokee Film Summit on January 24, 2019, at the YANMAR EVO//Center in Southwest Cherokee.
