‘Where Are the Independent Filmmakers?’
Boat session moderated by Argentinean film director and New York-based professor Julia Solomonoff (Head of Directing. Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema, Brooklyn College).
Normally aboard canal boats, now online, the Boat Sessions are the informal industry talks to challenge our set practices and inspire new ways of working and collaborating. This third session, moderated by filmmaker and Brooklyn Film School director Julia Solomonoff (Nobody’s Watching, Tribeca winner 2018), dives head first into the obvious challenges and not-so-obvious opportunities of an independent film scene, a less common phenomenon in subsidised film cultures than, for example, in the US. Joining her are director Lucío Castro (Fin de siglo) and Anne-Sophie Lehec, content director at the independent, blockchain-based sales platform Cinemarket.
HFM Boat Sessions
Returning HFM guests will remember this vividly: our semi-formal industry talks aboard a canal boat sailing around the picturesque canals of Utrecht. For this physically problematic year, we’ve recreated our nautical environment within our HFM Online platform, and we invite you to join us for five funky sessions. Have a chat and a drink with your colleagues on the ‘Upper Deck’, or take a seat on the ‘Lower Deck’ for a moderated discussion on topics challenging the contemporary Dutch and international film world.
This event is for HFM participants.
