About this Event

Learn the tools for creative independence.

Led by Christina Raia, 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 other information to arm yourself with as you enter negotiations.

About Women in Media

Women In Media promotes gender balance in the film and entertainment industries through networking, professional development, and advocacy for women, women-identifying, and gender-nonconforming filmmakers who work above and below the line and the people who love to collaborate with them.

About Austin Film Society

Founded in 1985 by filmmaker Richard Linklater, AFS creates life-changing opportunities for filmmakers, catalyzes Austin and Texas as a creative hub, and brings the community together around great film. AFS supports filmmakers towards career leaps, encouraging exceptional artistic projects with grants and support services.

About Film Launch

With a broad offering of educational courses, 1:1 coaching and mentorship, and experience-driven consulting, Film Launch seeks to shape how content is ideated, produced, and distributed, and how that content can make a deep impact aligned with the creator’s vision.

Our focus expands beyond “how-to” into “why” and “what for.” We employ unique road-tested processes designed to accelerate the career of the indie content creator and/or the growth of the content production/distribution company. Our ultimate aim is expanding the difference visionary content can make in the world.

About The Chimaera Project

The Chimaera Project has been championing filmmakers who identify as female since 2013. We believe when people from different life experiences and points of view are given a chance to express themselves we can really create change. Our core programs demonstrate an inclusive model and it is important to us to support creative visionaries who are telling the stories that will grow our hearts, open minds and ask questions.


Women In Film & Television Atlanta (WIFTA) is dedicated to improving the status and portrayal of women in film, television, video and other screen-based media by offering opportunities to connect, create, champion and inspire. With an emphasis on professionalism, education and training, we support the work of women in moving images media and foster greater public awareness of their efforts.

About Indie Film Hustle

Indie Film Hustle is the premiere destination online for the real and raw truth about the film industry. Founded by film industry veteran Alex Ferrari, IFH was created to help filmmakers avoid the many pitfalls of Hollywood and teach them how to survive and thrive in the film business.

About CID

Since its inception in 1981, the Center for Independent Documentary (CID) has worked with hundreds of independent film and video producers to support the production of stories not often told in mainstream media. The extent of The Center's engagement with independent producers is unique and includes cooperation at all phases of their projects. Whether it be management of funds, offering creative and technical support, assistance in preparation of funding proposals or devising strategies to maximize a film's impact upon release, CID works hard to make sure that each filmmaker is supported 100% of the way. Through CID's fiscal sponsorship program, filmmakers enjoy access to state, federal and institutional funding as well as to tax deductible individual donations.
