Buffalo Film Expo strikes again!


The Second Buffalo Film Expo will be held on Saturday, November 1st at the Holiday Inn Buffalo Airport, 4600 Genesee Street in Cheektowaga, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  The event, which will feature panel discussions by local film professionals, sponsored by Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival.  Admission is only $10.00.

The lineup of panel discussions for Buffalo Film Expo Sat Nov. 1st at Holiday Inn Buffalo Airport are as follows: Screenwriting, Producing Your First Feature, the NYS Film Production Tax Incentive Program, Cinematography, the Business of Acting, and Documentary Filmmaking. We hope to have many of our panelists from last year return, plus some new faces, but we’ll finalize that as we get closer.

Anyone interested in being a sponsor or a vendor should message us. In addition, Paige K. Davis from Alternative Cinema will once again host a workshop on indie film distributor one week later, on Saturday November 8th, as part of Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, time TBD.

“Our goal is to bring as many local filmmakers and film enthusiasts from the Buffalo-Niagara-Rochester area together under one roof as possible,” says Gregory Lamberson, who co-directs Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival with Chris Scioli. “We have a large community of professional crew members, semi-pro feature filmmakers, aspiring filmmakers, craftsmen, actors and film students in Buffalo, which is one of the reasons we started Buffalo Dreams in the first place.  As hard as it is to believe, we’re spread out and disconnected, except maybe for the Buffalo Niagara Film Professionals page on Facebook.  With Buffalo Film Expo, we want to provide an educational forum and networking base for filmmakers of all levels of experience.  We’ve made the admission low so anyone can attend.”

Interested vendors should contact buffalofilmexpo@gmail.com. Buffalo Film Expo precedes Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, which runs Friday, November 7th – Thursday, November 13th at the Dipson Amherst Theater.
