Anthony Pedone will speak about the state of filmmaking in Victoria and the Crossroads region Thursday.
His lecture, "Independent Filmmaking in Victoria," begins 5:30 p.m. at the Museum of the Coastal Bend, 2200 E. Red River St.
He described the presentation as informal.
Likely, he will show clips from films that will be featured in the upcoming Victoria Texas Independent Film Festival that is scheduled March 22-24.
Pedone said he plans to answer questions from the audience.
"It is just nice to get an opportunity to exchange ideas and engage the community," he said.
Pedone, the executive director of the upcoming festival, also will discuss the festival mission and selection process of the chosen films.
The 41-year-old Victoria resident studied music composition at Southwest Texas State University and received his Certificate in Writing Social Commentary from Penn State University in 2005.
Pedone directed his first feature film, "The Why" in 2008. He produced and shot the feature film, "Roundball," in the Crossroads last year.
