Media release from the Catalyst Content Festival - August 8, 2019

Catalyst Content, an episodic/series media festival will be held in Duluth
October 9-13, 2019. The festival is 14 years old, but this is the first year it will be
held in Duluth, MN.

The job growth and economic impact that has occurred in cities with successful,
award-winning shows like Walking Dead in Atlanta, Breaking Bad in
Albuquerque, and Game of Thrones in Dublin is well established.

We look forward to Duluth experiencing an equally beneficial cultural, artistic and economic impact. Thus, we need help creating a complete and comprehensive Production Guide. Being listed in this guide is FREE because we are sponsored by St. Louis County and IRRRB.

This will encourage and inform productions interested in filming in the Arrowhead area that the local businesses and labor force are capable, willing, and excited to work on productions filming in the Upper Minnesota Region. We are asking that you collaborate with us in creating the “Production Guide” so that productions considering as a filming location know there
will be local workers, locations and support for their projects! 

Please join us Tuesday August 13 at 6:00 PM for an organizing meeting.
