10/10ths Interactive Filmmaker Event
Saturday, April 16th
04:00pm - 10:00pm
An event created BY filmmakers FOR filmmakers. Meet the creators of the 2-hour BMW motorsport documentary feature film, “10/10ths”. This FREE event gives you the opportunity to ask all the questions you’ve been wanting to ask, up close and personal. This lighthearted “party atmosphere” event allows one-on-one conversation with the filmmakers, as well as networking opportunities with everyone else in attendance.
Rather than sitting in rows of stuffy chairs, this event allows participants to have REAL conversations about real feature film productions and workflow.
Instead of being forced to be silent in a big room with no voice, this event allows participants to learn AND share their experiences in filmmaking.
We’ll also be showing previews of the film at the event, which may help inspire new questions and topics as the previews are shown.
