This community event of the Institute for International Film Financing (IIFF) features an exciting lineup of topical speakers from a broad range of backgrounds, as per IIFF’s mission to expand the scope and appeal of film financing.
The evening’s four presentations will address issues relevant to filmmakers, financiers, and anyone interested in the economics, business mechanics, and financial dynamics of film. The presentations will be followed by Q&A time. Attendees will have ample opportunity to network with presenters and amongst themselves.
Entrepreneurs, technologists, attorneys, venture capitalists and other non-film professionals who wish to learn about or take an active role in independent film are invited to attend. Filmmakers are, naturally, more than welcome to join us as well.
An informal apres-meeting celebration will take place at a nearby restaurant starting at 8:00 pm.
The evening will be moderated by Patrick Reilly.
