You've Made It to the Sundance Film Festival: What's Next?

Monday, January 25, 4:30 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge

This look at the second act of emerging filmmakers will feature a panel consisting of young directors as well as agents, managers, and studio production executives. Together, they will discuss the challenges facing emerging filmmakers after they've cleared the exhilarating bar of bringing a film to the Sundance Film Festival. How does one choose and finance the next project? How can one obtain representation? How can one become appealing to a studio? How does one parlay applause in Park City into a successful theatrical release? With the help of a moderator, the panel will examine these and other questions.

Moderator: Dana Harris (editor-in-chief and general manager, Indiewire)
Panelists: Chad Hartigan (director, Morris From America, This is Martin Bonner; UNCSA alumnus), Rebecca Green (producer, I'll See You in My Dreams, It Follows; UNCSA alumna), Peter Van Steemberg (motion picture agent, ICM Partners International Division), Morris Ruskin (producer of more than 50 films, including Glengarry Glen Ross, and CEO of Shoreline Entertainment)
Presented by the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
