Mon, November 7, 2022, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Winter Haven Public Library 325 Avenue A NW Winter Haven, FL 33881
At this series kickoff event, David Morton will discuss how Florida became a “third coast” to the American film and television industries over the past one hundred years. Often overlooked in its contribution to film history, Florida played a key role in creating the modern entertainment industry.
David Morton received his Ph.D. from the University of Central Florida in 2019, where he is also an instructor in both History and Media Studies. His forthcoming book, Motion Pictures at Great Savings: A History of the Florida Film and Television Industry is expected for publication in 2023 with University Press of Florida
