IFP’s FILMMAKER CONFERENCE TO INCLUDE NEVINS, SLOSS & ROSENTHAL
The IFP announced today their line up for this year’s Filmmaker Conference, which will take place during their Independent Film Week Sept. 19 – 23. Sheila Nevins, President of HBO Documentary Films, John Sloss, founder of Cinetic Media, and cross-media and digital film expert Liz Rosenthal of Power to the Pixel will headline their “Conversations With…” series. There will also be daily case studies featuring the Duplass Brothers’ Cyrus, Lena Dunham’s SXSW winner Tiny Furniture and Sundance 2010 Grand Jury Prize winners Debra Granik’s Winter’s Bone and Restrepo by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger. And for the first time the Conference will also include “Cage Matches,” pitting industry heavyweights on opposing sides of contentious issues in a head-to-head debate.
