Join our fishbowl conversation between Jannette Napoli, Manager Content and Initiatives at ITVS, and two independent filmmakers, Ursula Liang and Kevin Shaw. Ursula and Kevin were both awarded funding from ITVS and the conversation will focus on the hard work that goes into developing an idea, the grind of pitching and applying for funding, how ITVS identifies potential at different stages, and what working with a funding partner may look like.

Tickets are $19 ($14 for IFC Center members). Tickets are non-refundable.

All registrants may participate in the live session, and will also receive access to the recorded event, a written transcript, and a copy of the slide presentation after the livestream.
