Attention Filmmakers and Industry people: IFP (@ifpfilm) is hosting their annual filmmaker conference next month and is definitely worth checking out. This is a great place to meet other industry people and become informed on new trends and ideas in filmmaking. If you haven’t signed up for the IFP Newsletter, we highly recommend it as they play in an integral role in spreading the word about our special programs and festival.
Held during IFP’s signature Independent Film Week, the Filmmaker Conference brings together the international filmmaking community to celebrate, advocate, and introduce new voices on the independent scene, as well as explore the art and business of 21st century storytelling. Whether stories are told through film, television, or new media, the Filmmaker Conference is the premiere place to interact with experts on how to connect with audiences and stand out in a crowded marketplace.
Highlights include Keynotes from producer Christine Vachon (@kvpi) and Focus Features’ (@FocusFeatures) James Schamus (who we are highlighting in our Industy Toast), ARTE’s Michel Reilhac (@MichelReilhac), and Ford Foundations’ (@FordFoundation) Orlando Bagwell, as well as pitch workshops, case studies of this year’s hit indies like Beasts of the Southern Wild, and vital info you can use to produce your latest & greatest works.
New! Meet the Decision Makers – real meetings for Conference passholders with top distributors, agents & managers, and filmmakers’ grants and fellowships. Limited tickets available!
