This panel brings together four top industry professionals who are at the forefront of film financing. Two of them are University of Arizona alums. All of them are expert at finding the money for film financing, using all types of domestic and foreign resources, incentives, presales, investors, and co-productions. They know where the money is hiding, and how to get it committed to a film budget.
The panelists approach film financing from different angles -- as an agent, a lawyer, a producer/executive, and a COO of an international financing/production/distribution company. They work with films of all shapes and sizes, and every film has it own plusses and minuses in terms of financing options. Learn how to enhance your chances of getting the money by increasing your project’s potential and diminishing its drawbacks.
For this panel, we have a very special added attraction. You can enter a contest to win a brainstorming session by the panelists on how to finance your film/TV project. It can be an imagined project or something you’re really working on. The winner will be announced at the panel and he/she will be invited to the panel table for the expert financing session. Two runners-up will win the chance to meet with a panelist to talk about their project. Go to the Contest page for details and information on how to enter the contest.
