For the 14th year, Access Sacramento launches “A Place Called Sacramento”
For the 14th year, Access Sacramento is launching “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.
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 at this time.
Finally, friends gather at the 1:00 PM World Premiere to a packed house at the Crest Theatre, 1013 K St Sacramento, on Sunday, October 6, 2013. To view the films completed for the 2012 & previous PCS film festivals, you may go to the web site www.AccessSacramento.org or www.AccessLocal.tv.
In the thirteen years of “A Place Called Sacramento” 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 television studio, radio and television production equipment, media lab, mobile production truck, and other gear, Access trains volunteers and share their work on cable radio and television channels 17 & 18.
