Link to American Film Market Conference Highlights 2016

Every year I speak on a panel at the American Film Market.  This is always an interesting opportunity to meet and interact with writers, producers, distributors and other creative types.  There are three other major film markets (at Berlin, Cannes and Toronto) but this one is 20 minutes from my house making it the most convenient for obvious reasons.  I really enjoy the whole experience as this is hands down the best way to see what is currently being developed, what is being produced and most importantly what it being acquired from distributors (and at what price).

The American Film Market (AFM) is a film industry event held each year at the beginning of November in Santa Monica, California. More than 8,000 people attend the eight-day annual event to network and to sell, finance and acquire films. Participants come from more than 70 countries and include acquisition and development executives, agents, attorneys, directors, distributors, festival directors, financiers, film commissioners, producers, writers, etc. Founded in 1981, the AFM is a marketplace for the film business, where unlike a film festival, production and distribution deals are the main focus of the participants.
