Join Breaking Through the Lens and Film Fatales at the Toronto International Film Festival for an in person panel discussion about Making Meaningful Change in the World of Film Financing with Apoorva Guru (Producer, Joyland), April Shih (Founder, Diversity Higher), Luis De Filippis (Director, Something You Said Last Night), Nikkia Moulterie (Producer, Nanny), and Sophia Dilley (SVP, Concord Originals). Moderated by Jasmin Morrison (Sky Original Film).
The constant search for funding is one of the hardest aspects of creating a film. Access to finance and budget size are the major barriers for under-represented groups in the industry. In this talk, we will bring together Directors, Producers, Sales Agents and Financiers who are walking the walk to find creative ways to fund a diverse slate of projects. Through their experiences we will explore how we can move the needle on whose story gets to be told and what you can do to find funding for your films. Open to all Film Fatales members and film festival pass holders.
