THANK YOU TO OUR ATTENDEES FOR A GREAT FORUM!
The Film Independent Forum was a weekend packed with off-the-record discussions, practical solutions and extensive case studies, all reflecting the reality of the industry today.
Don’t miss highlights from three days of success stories and solution-driven strategies, starting with the keynote speech delivered by Academy Award®-nominated director John Singleton.
“Just roll up your sleeves, work where there is real intensity of life. Don’t work in an office. Work as a bouncer in a sex club. Or work as a guard in a maximum security prison. Earn the money in half a year and then make your film no matter what.”
—Werner Herzog, director, 2011 Keynote Speaker
“You can’t just have a dream, you have to have a plan.”
—Joe Drake, President, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, 2010 Keynote Speaker
“Can we accept that being a filmmaker means taking responsibility for your films… all the way through the process? That is independence and that is freedom.”
—Ted Hope, This is that corporation, 2008 Keynote Speaker
