Business of Film


The Moving Picture Institute's Business of Film program kicks off with a three-day summit in Los Angeles and carries on through several months of virtual meetings. The summit schedule features expert advice from showrunners, producers, agents, development executives, film financiers, and more. During the November summit in Los Angeles, filmmakers enjoy networking opportunities and small masterclasses designed to help them successfully navigate the entertainment business. Virtual meetings enable filmmakers from across the country (and the globe) to participate in sessions on topics such as entertainment law, pitching, getting representation, leveraging festivals, and more.
