Film Independent sent out the following email:

We have spent the last ten years making the Film Financing Conference an invaluable experience for filmmakers, and as the industry is swept by very significant changes, we want to rise up to meet those changes with programs that meet filmmaker needs at this moment.  With that in mind, the Los Angeles Film Festival has created Seize the Power: A Marketing and (DIY)stribution Symposium, a new program specifically designed to help filmmakers navigate marketing and distribution in the growing age of new media and to promote an open dialogue on the impact and exciting possibilities the changes in our industry bring.

Seize the Power: A Marketing and (DIY)stribution Symposium will be held June 19 - 20 at the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE, and will host the same insight, quality of information, and caliber of speakers that has made our Financing Conference a vital stop for filmmakers.

Are you looking for financing?  About to shoot? It's time for filmmakers to think about their marketing and distribution from the moment they get the green light. Remember, distribution begins NOW.

If you want to MONETIZE YOUR ART, you can't miss this event.
