I'm attending the Film Independent Forum this weekend in Los Angeles. It kicks off tonight with a screening of Like Crazy. I haven't seen it yet so that's great. Always happy to watch a new indie.
Trailer for Like Crazy:
I'm really looking forward to this event. There are some great panels on financing for both narrative and docs and marketing and distribution. I'm very curious about the marketing panels and building an audience. With marketing becoming part of our jobs, we could all use a little advice. I'll share what I find out.
I think these forums are an excellent way to keep from re-inventing the wheel. As producers, we often work in a vacuum and these events allow us to hear others' experiences. That's invaluable.
I believe there are seats still available to attend. If interested, go here.
