If you want an effective and compelling event, one that will engage your audiences, you need to rethink the format, delivery and content.
Production coordinators and filmmakers know better than anyone that the activities that take place behind the scenes are every bit as important as getting things right in front of the camera. To ensure that film production goes at an uninterrupted pace, it is essential that production coordinators are provided with all the space and amenities that are required for a successful filmmaking experience. However, the role of events in the film industry is not limited during production but plays a definitive role during post-production activities as well. The global box office revenues are expected to achieve nearly 50 billion USD by 2020, and the events industry is already helping filmmakers to attain these numbers:

Two simple words; suddenly at the forefront of popular culture. Around the world, producers, PR execs and performers are left scrambling; each trying to learn the ins and outs of live streaming.

Costumes play one of the most important roles in portraying the film character. That is why we cannot even imagine some of the most prominent actors playing a certain role in a costume other than he/she actually wore. Choosing attire for film or TV sets is a task done by the costume departments. More than once have they gone out of their ways to make pieces of clothes that are effective and iconic. Even though there are some facts known to the general public, in this article, we will share some things you probably didn't know about film and TV costumes.
Most people have a love/hate relationship with networking events. We come up with any excuse we can to avoid making small talk and circumvent the potentially awkward interactions while we wait for a plastic cup of cheap wine. We’ve all been there; we’ve all done that. But, there’s a better way and it’s what we like to call “How to Work a Room (and Not Hate Yourself in the Morning),” or, more simply, “Networking for Introverts.”

Whether you are a new filmmaker, a writer or just cinephile, choosing the right festival can feel like an overwhelming task. A quick google search reveals more than 3,000 festivals in the world! North America is host to nearly 70% and the cost often isn't worth the reward. However, one bright light shines from the desert with their commitment to quality, education and the film community. The Phoenix Film Festival boasts the titles of Top 25 coolest film festivals and one of the Top 50 worth the entry fee by MovieMaker Magazine. PFF has a special place in my heart, as well.
