Tonawanda News — The first Buffalo Film Expo is scheduled to take place Nov. 3 at the Holiday Inn Buffalo Airport, featuring a variety of vendors and panel discussions led by local film professionals.

The expo is a collaborative effort between local promoter Ted Hanes and Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival.

“Our goal is to bring as many local filmmakers and film enthusiasts from the Buffalo-Niagara-Rochester area together under one roof as possible, said Gregory Lamberson, co-director of the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival. “We have a large community of professional crew members, semi-pro feature filmmakers, aspiring filmmakers, craftsmen, actors and film students in Buffalo, which is one of the reasons we started Buffalo Dreams in the first place. 

“With Buffalo Film Expo, we want to provide an educational forum and networking base for filmmakers of all levels of experience. We’ve made the admission level low so anyone can attend.”

The event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 4600 Genesee St., Cheektowaga, costs $5 to attend.
