PushPush Film and Theater to Use NEA Arts in Media Grant for New Series
PushPush Film and Theatre is seeking experienced writers, directors, filmmakers, interns, actors, and more for its new film series GRFX. The project is possible because, as National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman announced today, PushPush Film and Theater is one of 78 not-for-profit national, regional, state, and local organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Arts in Media grant.
PushPush is recommended for a $75,000.00 grant, over two years, to develop a production team, a writing and directing staff and other key personnel for the creation of an original series about the challenges of creating new global stories in rapidly changing times. The series will digitally mirror the company's mission and work over the last 15 years. The goal is to feature the work of local, national and International Artists ranging from filmmakers and theater professionals to graphic illustrators, visual artists and musicians.
PushPush will hold two information sessions for performing and filmmaking artists, designers, illustrators, actors, directors, writers, producers, interns and other artists interested in getting involved in the development of PushPush's new NEA-supported film series, GRFX. There will be an overview of the project from 6:30-7:15, followed by a Q&A.
The same information will be covered at both meetings (Monday June 11th and Tuesday June 12th).
