Friday, October 6


As the landscape of film distribution and exhibition continues to evolve at a rapid pace, an industry that once relied on physical prints has now evolved to allow for instant streaming of thousands of films on countless platforms and devices. For filmmakers, this means deciding between a variety of potential avenues through which to get their work into the world, and for audiences a neverending feeling of decision fatigue. With a panel of experts in fields on both sides, this talk will help to shed light on an exciting and ever-changing landscape.

Saturday, October 7


Join this year’s breakthrough performers for a lively discussion about what it takes to make it as a young actor (and maybe also writer, director, producer…) in today’s film industry. The actors will share stories about their work and experiences in a casual and intimate setting.
