Now more than ever, independent filmmakers are being forced to rethink the experience of making, marketing and exhibiting their work. From the development of a new script to completing post-production; from weighing options on festival strategy to navigating sales and distribution options; from marketing their latest work to strategizing their next career move, the creative and commercial choices available to filmmakers are truly dizzying.
IFP is the nation’s oldest and largest non-profit of independent filmmakers. We are proud to present the 5th annual Independent Filmmaker Conference, a vibrant space for first-time-filmmakers and seasoned industry pros to address and evaluate new opportunities. Through forward-thinking discussions, innovative case studies, and cutting-edge content, the Conference’s esteemed speakers will spend five days exploring the ever-shifting landscape within the art and business of filmmaking.
The Conference aims to open up a dynamic dialogue amongst the film, media and creative community – as well as the general public – to discuss how artistic choices and business decisions impact artists, industry and audiences alike and shape the future of independent film and media-making.
We look forward to seeing you there and encourage all audience members – from the aspiring artist to the veteran film professional - to join in the discussion and share new ideas in this important dialogue.
