The day after Oscars for Manchester by the Sea: Gloucester and Cape Ann shine at MPC MA film and media event at WGBH

Talk about timing! The topics for the fascinating Massachusetts Production Coalition (MPC) event held at WGBH were planned  in advance of any Academy Awards results. After a season of many accolades including the prior evening’s Oscars news, boy did that gathering buzz. Conversations sparked with local names, industry folks, businesses and locales such as: Willow Rest, Pratty’s, local film folks, Gloucester Stage, Israel Horovitz, Kenneth Lonergan, local police, Rt 128, and the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce.

The two featured presentations were Legendary Entertainment’s Matt Marolda on analytics in film, followed by a Meg Montagnino-Jarrett led panel discussion on the making of Manchester by the Sea.
