Film Fete & Mixer

The Farmington Valley Film Commission's second annual Film Fete and Mixer will take place July 22 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville, CT.

The volunteer-based commission hopes to promote filmmaking and producing in the Farmington Valley through events such as the film festival and the creation of a production guide for the region — a full list of anything a director or producer would need to create a film.

"The Farmington Valley has a lot to offer," said video producer Craig Murphy. "There is a lot of history here."

There's also an incentive for movie-makers — a law passed by the legislature in 2006 and amended in 2007 gives a tax credit of up to 30 percent to companies that shoot or produce movies in the state.

"Collinsville itself is known for its arts. If you are going to do a film fete, this is the place to do it," said producer and writer Steve Emirzian.
