The FAC productions will be on-going and the short films will begin with production of Season 1…

FAC is currently seeking writers, directors and producers who want to be involved.
(Cast and crew calls will take place later as projects develop).
If you are a writer, director or producer and are interested, an informational meeting will be held:
Date: June 20, 2015 (Saturday)
Time: 10:45am
Address: 1031 South Broadway, Suite 1042, Los Angeles, 90015
