Saturday Mornings 2.0
The NMC Saturday Morning Cartoon series is devoted to showcasing entertainment the entire PGA family can come together to enjoy in a fun, family-friendly, social experience. PGA members are invited to bring along kids of all ages to this screening series that will highlight new film, TV and other digital media produced by members of the PGA. Working with producers and studios of the content screened in the series, the NMC hopes to be able to make the mornings interactive, giving the audience a behind-the-scenes look at how the stories came to life, who was involved and how the word is getting out about the production – with the occasional visit from a caped crusader. By fostering this sense of discovery and enabling a true PGA community spirit, the Saturday Morning Cartoon series’ aim is that little kids and big kids at heart are entertained and see how producers enabled that experience.
