Hi, My name is Patricia Ferguson. I am Founder and President of Equity Films, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. We are so proud to present A Pecan Pickling short film festival in Bertie County, NC. Bertie County is a picturesque community in the heartland of undiscovered and underrepresented creativity and innovation. This rural, agrarian majority African American community stands ready to explore the potential of the film industry. With a county history of tenant farming and hard work, the present generation stands ready to learn and transfer skills to help themselves, and the BIG SCREEN thrive. Our goal is workforce development to attract small productions
$5 M and under. The showcasing of A Pecan Pickling Short Film Festival is our signal to the universe that talent is here and can grow and mature here and stay here.
I hope you are making plans to join us at A Pecan Pickling Short Film Festival September 8-10, 2023! You'll be glad you did! Don't forget to bring others with you as we FILL THE SEATS of the 500 seat state-of-the-art auditorium on the campus of the beautiful Bertie County High School!
