LOCATIONS

Three feature films are currently shooting in New England: Patriot’s Day, Stronger and Thoroughbred.

Advocacy Day is May 9

Join us at the statehouse on Monday, May 9, for a critical day of action and advocacy to keep film and TV jobs in Massachusetts. Beacon Hill needs to hear from you! It is now more important than ever that SAG-AFTRA members attend this event and send a clear message to the Massachusetts Legislature that films made in Massachusetts equals good jobs for the people of Massachusetts.

Advocacy Day schedule:

9 a.m.: Sign-holding around perimeter of statehouse

10 a.m.: Registration begins in Gardner Auditorium

11 a.m.: Speaking program in Gardner Auditorium

Noon: Visit state legislators’ offices 

Please RSVP to SAG-AFTRA Business Representative Benjamin Winthrop at benjamin.winthrop@sagaftra.org. SAG-AFTRA T-shirts will be distributed outside the statehouse to SAG-AFTRA members on a first come, first served basis. 

Share this event with your network and on social media. We need a large turnout at the statehouse to make our industry’s voice heard! Advocacy Day on May 9 is a critical piece of our campaign to preserve and protect the film and TV incentive program. Last-minute participants are always welcome!
