The Art and Commerce of Film

We’re doing things a little different this year.

SWAMP’s Business of Film + New Media Conference will now be a series of monthly workshops that will explore the art and commerce of cinema with working industry professionals and filmmakers.

The Business of Film Series is dedicated to strengthening the business, administrative, legal and marketing skills of independent filmmakers and the production team. With the independent film world changing daily, it’s vital to be informed about current trends in the production and distribution of film.

Whether you are an emerging filmmaker or an experienced producer, theThe Business of Film Series is for you. Filmmaking is a business and film production, documentary or narrative, is a journey that you can’t make effectively or efficiently without dealing with the reality of the business. Learn about the back office aspects of production, such as copyright, contracts, budgeting, insurance, and other essentials.

Experts in the field will talk about current trends as well as the future of independent filmmaking. Meet fellow filmmakers! Discover new resources! It will all be here for you to seize the day and follow your passion.

The Business of Film Series will begin in August 2018. We will add workshops here as we finalize details. Check back here or follow us on social media (fb, twitter, IG: swampfilm).
