Roundtable: Independent Filmmaking

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Get in-depth answers to your questions about how to make it in the world of independent film. How do you find funds for your project? How does the process of making a short differ from that of a feature? What do the stages of production actually entail? How do you navigate the dense festival circuit and position your film for its best shot at success? And after all that, how do you market your film and find distribution? This roundtable session offers registrants exclusive access to independent filmmakers, producers, and distributors in an informal setting.

Austin Film Festival’s Roundtable Sessions offer registrants exclusive access to writers, producers, and executives. The atmosphere is casual and registrants are encouraged to ask specific questions about the creative and business aspects of writing for film and television. Each session provides an opportunity for registrants to speak with three professionals among a small group of peers.

All Roundtables take place at St. David’s Episcopal Church’s Crail Hall, located at 301 E 8th Street.

ROUNDTABLE REGISTRATION HOURS:
Registrants must sign up for Roundtable Sessions in the Mezzanine of the Driskill Hotel!
