If you want to learn about the film industry in Iowa – and especially the Quad Cities – Doug Miller is the guy to ask. He’s our scheduled speaker at the March 4 meeting – signaling our return for a month to Tanglewood Pavilion.
Doug "assisted in the creation of the original Iowa Film Office as a member of its advisory board and as a board member of the Iowa Department of Economic Development,” according to the Iowa Motion Picture Association. In addition, he "was honored with one of the first Iowa Film Awards, served as one of the founders of the Iowa Motion Picture Association and was elected as its first president.”
J. Douglas Miller was born, raised and educated in the Quad Cities and began his career as an usher at the RKO Orpheum Theatre in Davenport.
