Events: Doctor’s Hours for Filmmakers

Events: Doctor’s Hours for Filmmakers

June 26, 2014, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Starting a new film? In the middle, finishing, or trying to get your film seen? Are you seeking professional feedback on a work sample, trailer, website, outreach strategy, written material or grant application? Networking may be the single most valuable thing you can do for your career. Rather than getting three minutes in a festival lobby or after a panel, here is an opportunity to meet people in the industry and make them truly familiar with you and your films.

This event will provide you with 20-minute, one-on-one consultations with theatrical and nontheatrical distributors, exhibitors, broadcasters, outreach strategists, and fundraisers who work with companies and organizations like Tribeca Film Institute, Variance Films, Cinetic Media, POV, IFP, and Borderline Media.

Please note: Doctors are asked to give feedback and suggestions to artists regarding the presentation of their work, not the quality of their work. 

WHEN: June 26, 2014, from 6:00 PM- 9:00 PM

WHERE: New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), 20 Jay Street, Suite 740, Brooklyn, NY 11201. Directions are available on our website.

COST: $25 per appointment; there is a three-appointment limit per registrant.

REGISTRATION: Register here.

Note: If registering for the first time, you will need to make a login account for your first registration.
