(901 W Olympic Blvd Los Angeles, 90015)

Hone your craft at our Master Class panels as industry experts guide you through a series of technical classes - from the inception of an idea, character development and writing techniques, through production and post-production to marketing and distribution of your film. This is a workshop that no filmmaker should miss (11a-4p).

WRITING FOR FILM - Breaking down the basics and fundamental aspects of storytelling in film: character creation and development, plot development, writing structure and technique. This class will also cover formatting a screenplay, outlining a screenplay, and the importance of the first 10 pages.

RAISING CAPITAL - One of the biggest challenges that comes with pre production is having the capital to fund the project and the various departments that necessitate financial aid: permits, crew, production equipment, etc. This master class will provide attendees with strategic fundraising mechanisms in order to make the production and post production process seamless.

CINEMATOGRAPHY - This masterclass will be an in-depth workshop analyzing large format cinematography, the fundamental function of lenses and the history of motion pictures.

EDITING - Using the industry-leading video editing software for film, TV, and the web ‘’Adobe Premiere,” this master class will provide a comprehensive understanding of video editing and the endless possibilities filmmakers can utilize to bring their story to life.

MARKETING + DISTRIBUTION - Now that you have a film you’re proud of, how do you go about getting the world to see it? This master class will teach attendees the importance of marketing a project and finding a distribution outlet.

Awards Ceremony: Courtyard Marriott

To conclude the festival we will honor outstanding films and the filmmakers who worked diligently to produce their projects.
