Did you miss the Filmmaker Conference at Independent Film Week last month?  Me too – I managed to catch a few panels, but I spent most of the week running around, working, and attending other IFW events (as evidenced by my photo blogs here, here, and here).

Luckily, IFP will streaming the entire conference available to members.  One new video will be added to every weekday this month.  Membership levels start at $35, which for roughly 30 hours of film industry education (and tons of other benefits) is not a bad deal.

One video is already online – a case study of Sundance Audience Award winning documentary Buck featuring director Cindy Meehl, producer Julie Goldman, editor Toby Shimin, associate producer Sofia Santana, line producer Alice Henty, and co-executive producer and Back Allie Films president Andrea Meditch.

Other panels coming soon:

Keynote addresses from Geoffrey Gilmore (Tribeca Enterprises), Rose Kuo (Film Society of Lincoln Center), Keri Putnam (Sundance Institute), and Josh Braun (Submarine Entertainment).

Case studies featuring the creative teams behind recent indie successes Red State, Terri, Kinyarwanda, and Bill Cunningham New York.

Masterclass: “How to Finance Your Film” featuring Ira Deutchman (Emerging Pictures), Richard Sheehan (HSBC Bank), Jonathan Gray (Gray Krauss Des Rochers LLP), Philipp Engelhorn (Cinereach), Pat Kaufman (New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture and Television Development), and Nekisa Cooper (Producer, Pariah)

“Is Indie Film a Hobby or Career” Cage Match featuring Ted Hope (Producer, Super, Adventureland) and Mynette Louie (Children of Invention).

Masterclass: “How to Design a Winning Distribution Strategy” with Peter Broderick (Paradigm Consulting)
