We’re excited to announce the Filmmaker Summit, a gathering taking place online and in Park City at the Slamdance Film Festival. The WorkBook Project, Slamdance and the Open Video Alliance have come together to stage a global event that will bring delegates from various parts of the world together to discuss and debate pressing issues that filmmakers currently face. But it isn’t just the delegates who will be shaping the discussion. The Summit also invites filmmakers to share what they believe are the most pressing issues to them. In addition to discussion we hope to come out of the event with some tangible next steps.

Throughout the day, discussions will center on what the filmmaking community would like to see the industry become Рa chance to focus on the future and not worry about the trappings of the past. Today’s reality is that filmmakers must now expand their role and take charge of reaching and engaging worldwide audiences across all viewing platforms. In this direct approach, the viewer becomes collaborative, less passive and more connected then ever before. New business models will emerge as a direct result of experimentation and transparency around process. The Filmmaker Summit is an experiment onto itself and we welcome comments and suggestions on how to make it more impactful.
