This looks like a great conference. I'm going to try to attend myself!
The Producers Guild is working with the top producers in the entertainment industry to host the first annual PRODUCED BY 2009 conference this June 5th-7th at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City. Attendees will interact with and learn from the likes of James Cameron, Clint Eastwood, Kathleen Kennedy, Lauren Shuler Donner and producers of Emmy winning TV shows including Desperate Housewives and Two And A Half Men.
Here are some unique sessions that may be good for us indie filmmakers. Honestly, I'm a huge proponent of being knowledgeable about and friendly with the entire industry even though we are indie...but here are the indie film sessions:
· FINANCING INDEPENDENT FILM
· INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING: THE WAY IT WAS, THE WAY IT IS AND THE WAY IT OUGHT TO BE
· THE STATE OF INDIE DISTRIBUTION
From the Guild: Attendees can take advantage of over 30 film, television and new media sessions with 100+ producers covering everything you need to know to be a great producer. This is an opportunity to get in the room with Hollywood’s most successful producers.
