Event description
A one-day conference to supercharge your career and plan your pathway to a truly independent, sustainable film career.

About this Event

The future of filmmaking is here. And we want you to have a major role.

Join Seed&Spark for an afternoon of workshops, expert panels and networking to help you build an audience, unpack the mystery of distribution and effectively raise the funds to bring your story to life, right here in Atlanta.

Atlanta film leaders share their insights.

Key figures from different aspects of the local creative industry, including Film Impact Georgia's Molly Coffee, writer/director Van Jensen and WIFTA Board President LaRonda Sutton, talk building a career in Atlanta in a panel moderated by Seed&Spark CEO Emily Best.

Learn the tools for creative independence.

Study the techniques of successful crowdfunding campaigns — how to identify your audiences, bring them on board as followers and eventual funders, build meaningful partnerships to scale your reach, and create the most enticing possible pitch to audiences. Then, you'll get the down low on learning how to read between the lines of the data you gather while crowdfunding to increase the value of your IP and retain creative control.

Get the down low on distribution.

We'll break down the current landscape of distribution for independent film and TV, including the economics of different avenues to take, the right questions to ask potential partners, and what needs to be done from pre-production through post-production to set yourself up for successful distribution.

  • 3 pm Doors open

  • 6:30 pm The Distribution Down Low Workshop
