Rockdale County government, Conyers Rockdale Council for the Arts (CRCA) and the Conyers Rockdale Economic Development Council Film Office are partnering to present a workshop on business and professional opportunities Georgia’s growing filming industry is providing.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Black Box Theater at 910 Center St., Conyers. Registration for the free event starts at 10 a.m. and closes at 10:30 a.m. Seating is limited.

Workshop facilitators will discuss the $50 million impact the state’s film industry has made in Rockdale and the economic impact the industry has made on Georgia as a whole. In fiscal 2015 alone, for example, George films and television productions generated $6 billion in economic impact, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development.

Information will be provided on the various opportunities that are available in the industry—from working as part of the production crew and extras to serving as vendors and suppliers catering, hospitality and other services.
