FUTURE OF CINEMA FORUM
INDEPENDENT FILM: NAVIGATING THE DIGITAL SPACE
26 NOV 2016, SAT / 1.00PM / 150min
IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION BELOW
With so many platforms available online for independent filmmakers to present their work and challenge their creativity, filmmakers are not only spoilt for choice, but they also need to make more informed decisions before their film gets out. From online filmmaking competitions, funding initiatives, community-sourced production companies and distribution portals, this forum aims to equip and empower the independent filmmaker with the information they need to realize the potential of their films and artistic pursuits. Find out how you can retain your creative rights, monetize your works, challenge yourself even further with artistic collaborations, and extend the lifespan of your film beyond the festival circuit, with pointers and case-studies from our industry experts.
