ABOUT WEBINARS AND WORKSHOPS
This series offers low-cost workshops and webinars in the Fall and Spring. Conducted by highly experienced and successful professionals from the independent film industry, these events are targeted to all levels of filmmakers. They provide networking opportunities as well as valuable and practical information about the business of filmmaking.
Kelly Anderson (My Brooklyn, Unstuck: An OCD kids Movie) and Shawn Batey (The Changing Face of Harlem) will present their case studies on how and why self-distribution works. Each created robust plans (their films had over 50 screenings!) and will present their thoughts, clips from the films and tools they used to make their films a success without going the traditional festival/broadcast release route. Women Make Movies Executive Director, Debra Zimmerman, will moderate this productive and enlightening conversation. Come with your own projects and questions!
Chicken & Egg Pictures supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change.

Our special guest, Director of Programs Lucila Moctezuma, oversees the planning and implementation of programs and the grants that come along with them. The (Egg)celerator Lab open call will begin on Wednesday, May 15. Submission deadline: Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 3:00 PM ET.
