Listen as Rob Clute, executive director of QuinteVation talks to guests about the growth and evolution of the film industry right here in Quinte.
Part of what QuinteVation defines as ‘innovation’ are things that are happening in a rural setting that you would normally see in an urban environment or are completely unique to a rural environment. The flourishing film industry in the Bay of Quinte region fits that description perfectly.
Did you know that Trenton, over 100 years ago, played an important part in the rich history of silent motion pictures? It was dubbed ‘Hollywood North’ long before TIFF was ever an event.
Rob is joined by film makers who are setting the stage for this exciting, new medium locally. Aaron and Angela Bell of ‘Lot 48 Film Company’, Joel George, owner of Prime Focus Productions and founder of Cinema Quinte, Jason Miller, aspiring film maker who immigrated to the region from Jamaica discuss their journeys as they embarked into the film industry.
