WHAT’S YOUR POV? 10:30AM-11:40AM
It’s important to have a great story to tell, but you also need to know how to make it come to life.

Once your story is ready to go, how do you move forward? It can be overwhelming to put together a budget, apply for grants and create a crowdfunding campaign. Jenni Wolfson (Chicken and Egg Pictures), Sara Archambault (LEF Foundation), Kat Vecchio (Fork Films), and Rebecca Lichtenfeld (Bertha Foundation) provide a road map for getting your film financed. Moderator: Tracie Holder (Tracie Holder Consulting)

POST-PRODUCTION SECRETS 2:00PM-3:10PM
How much post-production can you afford and what is the best use of your time and budget? Post-production experts Joe Beirne and Ben Murray (Technicolor Postworks NY) and filmmaker Daniel DiMauro (Get Me Roger Stone) review scenarios and answer all your questions about editing, color, sound design and final delivery. Co-presented by Technicolor PostWorks NY

ENTER THE MARKET 3:30PM-4:30PM
