Working with a network of industry professionals, Eno River Media supports efforts to establish more full time independent media industry jobs and create a stronger, permanent film economy through professional development education.

Eno River Media strives to grow the indigenous video production industry capabilities of North Carolina creating more full time jobs within the North Carolina media industry.

Eno River Media strives to create an economic atmosphere conducive to growing the small to mid size budgeted movie projects within our state. Creating an infrastructure of finance, production and distribution available for the small to mid size budgeted movie projects lensed in the state of North Carolina will lead to NC becoming a hub of movie production for those small to mid sized budget movies.

If Hollywood is Nordstrom of the movie world then North Carolina will be Target.

Working with a network of industry professionals, Eno River Media supports efforts to establish more full time jobs with North Carolina media industry businesses creating a stronger economy for our state.

Eno River Media will continue advocating for increased funding of the NC Film Grant Program.

Eno River Media will also advocate to redirect existing entertainment tax dollars toward a loan based initiative for new NC based movie projects.

Eno River Media lobbies the NC Legislature for continued support of the industry. Since 2013, Lobbyist Tony Adams represents the film industry as Eno River Media as the principal.

Eno River Media collaborates with NC industry leaders to promote networking and creating a sustainable movie finance system for movie makers in the state.

Eno River Media started developing, at the request of the NC Legislature, a list of NC movie makers and videographers. This list is referred to as the NC Film Coalition.

Continued support by the North Carolina Legislature in terms of increased funding to the NC Film Grant Program will demonstrate progress toward our goals.

Creation of a Loan Program for Movie Makers using existing NC Entertainment Taxes will demonstrate progress toward our goals.

Creating and growing an online finance system option for NC movie makers like Slated and CineCoin will demonstrate progress.

Continued communication with the NC Film Coalition will demonstrate cohesion of industry players and progress toward a unified plan of growth.

The NC Film Grant program has been increased from $10 million in 2014 to $30 a year for 2016 and 2017.

The goal was to have the NC Film Grant Program funded at $40 - $60 million a year.

No action has been achieved on the Loan Fund by the NC Legislature.

Members of the The NC Film Coalition have been identified and new members are being sought.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
