PANEL ON FILM DISTRIBUTION AND FINANCING

Return to Virtual Cinema

In today's ever changing landscape of film production, how are films being financed and distributed?  And what if you’re just starting out?  How do you convince a financial backer to take a chance on your film?  Hear from leaders in the film world on the ins-and-outs of the financing and distribution process including: William Hasselberger (Film/Television Financier and Producer), Mark Sennet (Producer, Sennet Entetertainment), actress Bo Derek, Pam Williams (Producer, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, The Amazing Spider-Man), Rick Allen (CEO Snag Films), George Parra (Executive Producer, Joy, American Hustle), and independent film producer Cassian Elwes (Dalles Buyers Club).  Moderated by John Horn, host of KPCC’s The Frame, a daily arts and entertainment program on public radio.    This panel is presented in memory of Mary Dunham.
