The Berkshire Film & Media Collaborative creates educational, workforce and production opportunities in the film and media industry as an economic initiative for the Berkshire region of western Massachusetts.
As Berkshire County’s millennial population dwindles, finding a way to attract and keep young people in western Massachusetts is paramount, and an essential part of BFMC’s mission. We believe that by developing film, media and video game deign as viable local industries, young, creative and aspirational minds will establish roots here.
BFMC is laying this groundwork through courses at local colleges with the intention of expanding into our high schools. Our first workforce development course, “Get A Grip: An Introduction to Being a Grip PA on a Film Set” was fully enrolled and used local, talented professionals who were willing to share their expertise. This will ultimately support film and media production in the Berkshire region and continue to build a local industry that speaks to the 21st century. Help us make it happen.
