Even though Youtube, Facebook and Kickstarter have dramatically changed the entertainment landscape, the same question needs to be answered: How does the Indy/Outsider filmmaker engage the right kinds of legal support and the right producer? Food and beverages provided.

SANDRA SCHULBERG is an accomplished producer, specialized in international film finance. She spent seven years in Europe as a senior executive for American Playhouse/Playhouse International Pictures, charged with securing European and Japanese financing for American independent films and TV dramas. She managed film investments for Hollywood Partners, one of the private German media funds, providing financing and serving as executive producer for the Oscar-nominated Quills, starring Geoffrey Rush and Kate Winslet. A longtime advocate of independent filmmakers, she founded the Independent Feature Project and IFP Market; co-founded First Run Features; served as one of the first nominators to the Sundance Filmmakers Lab, and, for five years, as a member of the Sundance Film Festival Advisory Committee. Currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia University, she teaches Feature Film Financing and International Co-Production in the graduate film school, as well as film financing tutorials around the country. Her latest film, EXPOSED, by Beth B, premiered at 2013 Berlin Film Festival. For info:
