Berkshire Film & Media Collaborative Holds A Posh Picnic
Rachel Louchen reports from Lenox. It is a truth universally acknowledged; Berkshire residents love brunch and Tanglewood, and Sunday the Berkshire Film & Media Collaborative (BFMC) combined both, to raise money for its educational initiatives. The BFMC recognizes the abundance of creative residents living in our region and creates work, education and production opportunities in the film industry, in the hopes that a younger generation will establish long-term roots in Western Massachusetts. The brunch was hosted by actors and Great Barrington residents Jayne Atkinson and Michael Gill. Guests enjoyed their meals as the Lawn at Tanglewood became flooded with attendees for that afternoon’s performance of the Boston Symphony Orchestra featuring Joshua Bell. And as if a delicious meal at a beautiful location wasn’t enough, brunch attendees got Shed seating for the BSO performance — a most perfect dessert.
