SEMINAR #1 - FILM 101


BACK TO BASICS:
THINGS THEY DIDN'T TEACH YOU IN FILM SCHOOL

A great grab bag of information for new filmmakers from industry professionals including: Where to spend your money (money?!), planning for post-production, a distribution and broadcast primer, publicity, film festival strategies, legal issues and anecdotes from filmmakers. It’s kind of the WCFF version of ‘speed dating’ – you’ll leave knowing a little bit about many of the things you should take into consideration when making your film and give you a basis for your own exploration.

SEMINAR #2 – (funny) BUSINESS


IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BIZ: SELLING, PITCHING AND FINANCING

Meet the Decision Makers! Leading professionals from the film and television industry help de-mystify the process getting your film seen on television, in video stores, in theatres and on new media. Get the scoop on what they’re looking for in comedy programming, how to get in to pitch to them, what they want in a pitch, financing, license fees and tax credits, trends in programming and all that other business stuff. Great for filmmakers with some experience who want to take the next step in their careers.
