The Truth About Producing

Rebecca Green, producer of the indie horror sensation, IT FOLLOWS, and Editor-in-Chief of DearProducer.com, brings together some of the industry’s most talented producers in independent film to dissect the mysteries and misconceptions of the role of the producer. From financing struggles to shrinking budgets and the decline in traditional distribution models, panelists will discuss how they are constantly evolving and adapting in a changing landscape while sustaining a producing career. Through candidly sharing their personal stories and using real data, panelists will challenge archaic business models that stifle diverse and original voices and advocate for innovation, transparency, and fiscal responsibility from our industry.
