Bergen County's past, present and future in movies will be the focus of a free presentation Tuesday at Bergen Community College in Paramus.
The Bergen LEADS Class of 2016 spent 10 months studying and researching the industry's history in the county for "Take 2, Bergen: Bergen County Film Through the Years" from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Ciccone Theater. It also will provide current key film locations and offer recommendations to increase the number of movies made in the area. Industry notables Roger Paradiso and Gary Donatelli will moderate the discussion. Paradiso is the writer, producer and director of the Broadway play "Tony ‘N’ Tina’s Wedding," starring Mila Kunis and Joey McIntyre, and executive producer for the film "City By The Sea" with Robert DeNiro and Frances McDormand. He is also the co-producer of the "Thomas Crown Affair," starring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. Donatelli, a seven-time Emmy Award winning director and producer, directed several daytime dramas, including "One Life to Live," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and The Beautiful." There will be a vendor fair and networking session after the presentation featuring the Fort Lee Film Commission, the New Jersey Television & Motion Picture Commission, Fairleigh Dickinson University Film, TV, & Original Content Production, Sixth Borough Media and Bergen Community College Theater.
