For the past seven years, Film Independent has gathered industry insiders, thought provokers and game changers for a not to be missed weekend of panel discussions, seminars and one of a kind networking sessions.
This year’s Film Independent Forum, taking place October 21-23 at the Directors Guild of America, will cover a wide array of topics from real solutions for getting financing, recent legal challenges facing documentarians, insight into working the festival circuit, and options for filmmakers marketing and releasing their own work. For the first time, we’ll also look at working inside the box – an exploration of the new horizons and opportunities in television.
The Film Independent Forum will take place October 21-23 at the Directors Guild of America.
It is a weekend like no other – a true field guide to independent producing – and an incredible opportunity for filmmakers at all levels looking to expand their circle of connections.
