Executive Director

William Rogers has generated his keep from interviewing, editing, shooting and educating people and bringing the results to web, broadcast, theaters and classrooms for his entire career. He formed the Coruway Film Institute while teaching screenwriting and television production at the University of New Hampshire and has maintained a bearing in both the professional media world as well as the educational realm. His films have shown around the country on public television and recently on commercial television where the idea of the local being global is a ready marketing approach. He is an artist on the NH State Council on the Arts Arts & Education Roster and has also served on the NH Film Commission.
