Monterey County Film Commision Fundraiser at Cibo
Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - 5:00pm
Monterey County Film Commission invites you to join us for a fundraiser at Cibo Ristorante Italiano on Wednesday, October 25, 5pm-10pm. Cibo will donate 20% of dinner and drink sales that night to the film commission if diners mention the Monterey County Film Commission when arriving or making reservations in advance at 831-649-8151.
5pm-10pm, the community is welcomed to come by, enjoy a meal out with friends and family and celebrate the fact that more than $104 million has come into Monterey County communities from film productions since the non-profit Film Commission was created by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors in 1987. Diners will receive a complimentary Monterey Movie Map, meet film commission board members, and enter to win door prizes. 7pm-10pm, the band “Andrea’s Fault,” a light jazz group, will perform.
Each year an average economic boost of $4 million comes to the area because of the Commission’s efforts to attract and assist a variety of productions from fashion shoots to commercials and feature films. The Emmy Award-winning HBO limited series, Big Little Lies, filmed for four weeks on Monterey Peninsula last year, leaving an estimated $2.5 million in support of local hotels, restaurants, purchases, location rentals, and hiring of crew and 300 extras.
