How do we sustain ourselves as filmmakers and storytellers in this day of shifting film distribution systems? How do we monetize our film and get the word out? Presented by From Here to Awesome, the Workbook Project and Current TV – DIY DAYS aims to answer these questions with a day of panels, roundtable discussions and case studies: A look at how to fund, create, distribute and sustain.
DIY DAYS are a series of free live events that will take place in LA, SF, Boston, NYC and London. Each stop will be a bit different and the goal is to have a rolling discussion / debate about the current and future state of filmmaking and storytelling. Our tag for the event is fund :: create :: distribute :: sustain. Everything around DIY DAYS is open content which is meant to be embed and spread.
We’ve just launched a site for DIY DAYS LA which takes place in 3 weeks. Registration is now open and space is limited so make sure you secure your spot.
