PARAMUS, N.J. -- The Bergen LEADS Class of 2016 is bringing "Take 2, Bergen," on June 14. The forum will discuss the film industry through the years.

- What was the film industry of Bergen County like in the past?
- What is the current state now?
- What is the future of Bergen County in the economy of film, television and digital media?

- What recommendations do you have for policies to help stimulate this growth?
- New York City is continuing to expand and develop studio space in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. Why? What are the trends they are anticipating or hoping to stimulate?
