2015 Midwest Filmmaker Conference
May 1 - May 3
IFP MN launched the Midwest Filmmaker Conference (formerly called The Producers Conference) in 2000 in partnership with Minneapolis Community & Technical College to encourage and support the creation of independent films outside of Los Angeles and New York City, something we’ve always believed is vital to the future of independent American cinema.
Because our mission to develop and maintain film activity in the Midwest requires ongoing education from and interaction with the greater film industry, IFP MN continues to invite top independent film directors, producers, and industry professionals to share their knowledge, vision, experiences, advice, and encouragement with our film community. Presenters and panelists at the 2013 and 2014 conferences included: Lance Weiler, Marcus Hu, Joseph Beyer, Mynette Louie, Peter Phok, Shannah Laumeister, Dan Satorius, Aaron Young, James Belfer, Nicole Brending, Effie T. Brown, John Cooper, Natalie Difford, Laura Ivey, Ben Robbins, Benjamin May, Kenneth Rance, Jesse Roesler, Justin Simien, Mary Jane Skalski, Michael Starrbury, Mark Steele, Tessa Thompson, Tyler James Williams, and Zeke Zelker.
Details and guests for the 2015 Conference to be announced.
