FINANCING YOUR FILM: HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT PARTNERS

Just as projects require creative and technical collaborators, effective financing is built on healthy partnerships.  This session looks at the funding questions from every angle, including not only how to find those essential partners, but how to make sure that you’re protected every step of the way.

Whether you’re raising capital from outside investors and/or banking on foreign pre-sales, this discussion will give attendees a sense of realistic finance goals as well as red flags to be wary of as you push your project to the starting line.
