WMFVA Hosts New MFO Director with WMFO
The WMFVA hosted a morning reception along with West Michigan Film Office Commissioner Rick Hert to introduce our new Michigan Film Office (MFO) Commissioner, Margaret O'Riley, to our west side production community. The meeting was held at Kendall College of Art and Design's beautifully restored Historic Federal Building. Joining Margaret were Tony Garcia, Locations Scout and Research, and Michelle Begnoche, Communications Advisor. The gathering was informal and the attendees were able to not only ask questions but share experiences and concerns about the future of the film industry in our state and region. O'Riley stated that she has a long familiarity with the power of incentives and will work hard to make sure all of the $58 million in motion picture incentives will be granted to generate business in Michigan.
