February 23, 2023, Willowbrook, IL…Building on the successful launch of its North American platform, Destination Film Guide is pleased to welcome an industry veteran to help lead its team.

Ericka Frederick joins the brand on March 1 as Director of Film Marketing. Frederick’s career in the film production industry spans over two decades and includes academia, production, sales and distribution. 

At the university level, she has taught production and screenwriting, consulted on a multimillion-dollar buildout of production facilities and represented multiple institutions at international film festivals.  Frederick has been involved in 15 feature productions and shorts, while also heading up sales initiatives for Eastman Kodak Company

“My entire career has been built around seeing the big picture in the film business while connecting people to resources and each other,” said Frederick. “I am thrilled to be working with Destination Film Guide, creating more community by bringing the best resources to our industry.”

After a successful launch in 2021, Destination Film Guide is building its audience by attracting independent production companies, directors and creative talent interested in learning where and how they can shoot across North America.

“From my first meeting with Ericka, her passion for the film industry was immediately apparent,” said Jeff Gayduk, publisher of Destination Film Guide. “Her industry network and understanding into the innerworkings of the sector, from script to screen, pre to postproduction, will help our clients gain an upper hand and make better connections. I’m confident she’ll be the conduit that will help propel the DF brand to new heights.”
