Fans of Film Independent’s Producer Series take note: the Series has gone the way of cheap gas and winning post-season Dodgers teams, having been relegated to the ashcan of history.
Fear not, however. Replacing the time worn, slightly irrelevant Producer Series is the exciting new Filmmaker Forum, which aims to give independent filmmakers the tools they need to make a film and find distribution for it.
Held at the Hammer Museum over three days, from October 26-28, 2006, the Forum will feature panels, presentations, and networking (natch!) geared towards the independent filmmaker. As an added bonus, the program will kick off with a sneak preview of Catch a Fire, the latest film from Phillip Noyce, who will be on hand for a Q&A following the screening.
