I am thrilled to announce that I will be covering the huge American Film Market conference from November 6th to 13th in Santa Monica, CA. This event is best described by their website, below:
"The American Film Market is the most efficient film acquisition, development and networking event in the world. Unlike a festival, AFM is a marketplace where production and distribution deals are closed. More than US$1 billion in deals are sealed every year — on both completed films and those in every stage of development and production.
Over 7,000 industry professionals from more than 70 countries converge in Santa Monica every November. They include acquisition and development executives, agents, attorneys, directors, distributors, festival directors, financiers, film commissioners, producers, writers, the world’s press and all those who provide services to the motion picture industry."
Today they just released their list of speakers for the conference, including executives from Disney, Neon, Wattpad, Picturestart, Intel, United Talent Agency, Cornerstone Films, Cold Iron PIctures, Paramount -- the list goes on and on. I'm going to have to clone myself so I can be three places at once!
I will be reporting here often about the conference and trying hard not to get lost in the shuffle. It's huge, it's important, and it's sure to be a very exciting week.
