Room 16AB
Austin Convention Center


In a conversation with award-winning writer, filmmaker and director, Gina-Prince-Bythewood, we will discuss the power of Music, Film and the digital space, as we explore her experiences making films focused on great love stories. What was the journey like in writing and directing the widely acclaimed feature films, "Love and Basketball," adapting best-selling novel, "The Secret Life of Bees," directing HBO's "Disappearing Acts" as well as writing and directing her latest, third feature film, "Beyond The Lights?" What have we learned about audience development, marketing and new media in the making, marketing, distribution, screenings and responses to each film?
