In the last two months, nearly 20,000 tickets have been sold for a movie that highlights scenic settings in Dutchess County.

The region's film industry has boomed in the last year, with the worldwide release of "A Quiet Place," and dozens of other productions that have injected money into the local economy and provided jobs for residents.

The possibility for an area resident to break into the film industry is one of several topics that will be discussed on Tuesday, when the Hudson Valley Film Industry Conference is held at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.

With its emphasis on networking, this event is geared toward those working in the film industry and those hoping to learn more about it. 

The conference is being held as Dutchess County and the Hudson Valley are enjoying robust attention from filmmakers.
