SPEAKING FACULTY

In 2018, we will be celebrating our tenth year of hosting our Los Angeles forum! We began producing this flagship event after the market crashed in 2008 with the hopes of bringing investors back to the film business. Since then we have seen billions of dollars invested back into the movie business and its ancillary markets. Through the years, we have presented great industry leaders at our forums and are working diligently to bring together visionaries and tomorrow’s game-changers at our next event. To receive the latest 2018 speaker updates, request to join our email newsletter under our contacts page.
