IFP Film Week has long been a mecca for independent filmmakers to meet, connect with industry pros, pitch projects, and learn from a wide array of talks from some of the best in the business. This year, in celebration of the 100th issue of the IFP-produced Filmmaker Magazine, the organization has put together one of its most robust lineups yet for a special day of Filmmaker Magazine Talks

The prolific list of speakers is made up of those who have been featured in the magazine over its 25-year history, including the Safdie Brothers (Good Time), Sean Baker (Tangerine), Barry Jenkins and Adele Romanski (Moonlight), Dee Rees (Mudbound) and, of course, members of various classes of the magazine's annual  "25 New Faces of Independent Film" list, featuring our very own Ryan Koo.

The Filmmaker Magazine Talks take place on Sunday, September 17 in Brooklyn, NY. The best part is that IFP has generously offered FREE admission—a $150 value—to the first 15 members of the No Film School community who register here with Partner Code NOFILMSCHOOL

The Filmmaker Magazine Talks program includes:

  • What Does It Mean to be a Filmmaker Today? (With members of 25 New Faces of Indie Film)
  • A Conversation with Sean Baker
  • Artists + Activism: Paola Mendoza
  • Persona Project: Behind the Scenes
