Over the past decade, Film Independent’s Directors Close-Up has featured highly acclaimed and accomplished filmmakers discussing their craft in fascinating detail.

The annual DCU consists of five unique events over the course of five weeks in January and February, with each night focusing on a different aspect of the art and business of filmmaking. No other event drills down so thoroughly to give attendees insight into the creative processes of today’s top directors.

Each evening concludes with a hosted reception, giving attendees the opportunity to meet their peers and forge new relationships.
