MWCC will operate within all aspects of filmmaking: preproduction, production, post-production, promotion and distribution. MWCC works with high schools, universities, local professionals, producers, distributors and festivals to enhance creative talent and increase independent film production. The long-term goal is for the MWCC logo to be a signature of high quality for films produced in Miami.
