Let’s Hear From Our Membership

“Our film community has responded so overwhelmingly to the work of the SOC during the COVID shutdown, and I, along with some other members of the SOC, was fortunate to get to speak with a few of those members, to hear the positive impact these virtual events have had on them and to share in their gratitude. This is just a small sample of those appreciations.” —Craig Bauer, Associate SOC Member
