This year we’ve decided to take two of our most successful panels – one on producing films, the other on financing – and pair them together. The three part event will take place at the acclaimed B Bar in Manhattan, with the panels bookending an industry networking prix fixe “power brunch.” Moderator: Steven Beer. Producing Panelists: Jessica Caldwell (Awol, Happy Baby); Frida Torresblanco, Braven Films; Katie Stern (Listen Up Philip, Francine); J.P. Sarni, Head of Television at Cinema Gypsy Productions; Rose Ganguzza (Kill Your Darlings, Margin Call). Finance Panel: L.A Teodosio; Rafe Fogel, Falcon Investments/Board Member of Legendary Pictures; Kristen Konvitz, Indiegogo.
PANEL 1: WE NEED A BIGGER BOAT – PRODUCING INDEPENDENT CINEMA
Independent film – made without deep-pocketed support of major studios – relies on the ingenuity and resourcefulness of talented producers. Hear some of the finest producers working in indie cinema today discuss their projects, raising money in a troubled economy, and getting their film made no matter what
PANEL 2: SHOW ME THE MONEY
What more important question is there for aspiring filmmakers to answer than: How do I fund my film?! Hear experts – from established financiers to DIY and crowdfunding leaders – illuminate the way.
