The bad news we hear all day is that it’s hard to break into the entertainment industry. But the good news is that Independent Film is a wide-open playground, whether you’re in LA, Chicago or Lima. If you want to see your work come to life, and take charge of your creative process, join us to hear panelists break down strategies, best practices and key steps along the way, so that even a small movie can find a big audience.
