Independent Film Week kicks off in New York City this Sunday the 19th, and the main event of the week is the Independent Filmmaker Conference. It's going to be a networking clusterlove, with reps from CAA, ICM, Kickstarter, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics, Focus Features, Fox Searchlight, IFC, and festival programmers from Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, Toronto, Berlin, Rotterdam and more out and about. I'll be there as part of the No Borders Project Forum with my transmedia project 3rd Rail, but I'm going to try to make it to as many panels as I can -- of which there are 33 in all, covering the latest in need-to-know info for indies:
Aimed at helping filmmakers develop the tools necessary to realize projects in today's world, the Conference now explores not only the new and emerging business models for independent but also film's relationship to advertising, the web, gaming and transmedia. In addition, the IFP promises to modernize the conference experience this year, spotlighting new names in the business and creating online opportunities for members and the public to add their voice to the event.
