MEET THE INSIDERS

Meet the Insiders was introduced in 2013 to provide an opportunity to participate in vital discussions on the innovations and developments within the world of Film. Each hour-long session will feature two industry insiders: Moderators will start with a 40-minute Q&A with both participants, followed by 20 minutes of open discussion and questions from the audience with both Insiders. Connect with the film community, and gain insight into and understanding of the industry from the insiders at the forefront of their respective fields.
