I recently received this email (slightly edited to save you time reading it):
On behalf of the Whistler Film Festival I want offer your members a VIP discount code to attend this year's industry summit in Whistler, November 28th - December 2nd.
This would enable you to offer a valuable opportunity to your membership (along with an exclusive discount rate) and would help us spread the word on a very cool film industry conference that includes presenters from China, Hollywood and New York.
There are a lot of great industry panels and networking opportunities taking place that would benefit your membership. Of particular interest is the China Canada Gateway for Film Script competition where 12 writer/producer teams will pitch to Hollywood VIPs and 3 Chinese studios for the chance to develop their film. With up to $15 million in financing as the final prize, ticket holders will be able to observe what it takes to present a winning pitch for a lucrative international co-production opportunity.
Additionally, the Shortwork Lab provides new and veteran filmmakers the opportunity to engage in panel discussions, roundtables and pitch sessions where they can gain insight into short film distribution and exhibition and walk away better equipped to launch their film into the world.
There are a ton of other incredible panels, workshops and films that you can check out here: http://whistlerfilmfestival.com/
All the best,
