Now in its 10th year, the Film Independent Forum is the pre-eminent conference for independent filmmakers and content creators in Los Angeles. Off-the-record conversations with working filmmakers make this the must-attend fall event for filmmakers and industry professionals. If you are anywhere near production or close to entering the festival circuit, join your peers for a weekend of solution-driven strategies, success stories, and opportunities to connect one-on-one with working artists and industry pros.

"I was honored to be asked to present the Executive Keynote address at this year’s Film Independent Forum. We’re in an era of tremendous change but equally tremendous opportunity as new means of digital distribution arise. I look forward to a great conversation about emerging techniques, platforms, opportunities and pitfalls. " – Tim League, Founder & CEO, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema/Drafthouse Films/Fantastic Fest
"My goal as an artist has always been to privilege the other, to make the object the subject. Filmmaking provides the ideal opportunity to reverse the polarity around the seer and the seen. I’m so excited to share my ideas about how to make the kind of art that changes the world by captivating and illuminating authentic feelings. " – writer/director Jill Soloway
