What we're about

We are a group of film and media producers with the entrepreneurial spirit. We are a hub for filmmakers who think like entrepreneurs (or who WANT to think like entrepreneurs), creating projects that make money. We are a place to gather and talk about the challenges of living and working in independent film, and to meet people who can help you overcome those challenges. We are a nexus for filmmakers who realize you can't make a movie by yourself, and that there's so much more to filmmaking than just making the film. While we don't mind people who just make movies for fun, we are a group for people who want to make a real career in independent film. We have town hall-style meetings to gather and discuss the goings on in the indie film community here in San Francisco. We also plan to have seminars providing overviews for the business of film and video, and also in-depth workshops that teach filmmakers to think like business people. Our town halls are donation-based, our seminars are low-cost, and our workshops are reasonably priced.

2 Day Workshop! The 7 Steps to Fund, Produce, & Distribute Your Film

Needs a location

Join us for a two-day, interactive workshop on The 7 Steps to Funding, Producing, and Distributing Your Feature Film!

On May 26th & 27th, from 10:30am-2:30pm PDT / 1:30pm-5:30pm EDT, we’ll be meeting over Zoom for an in-depth look at the filmmaking process and the business side of it all.

It’s easy for filmmakers to get lost navigating the labyrinth that is the film industry, and without a clear path and understanding, you could stay lost for years.

It’s frustrating to sift through conflicting information online, hours of podcasts, and pages and pages of how-tos and books and articles, only to feel like you haven’t gotten anywhere or learned anything.

The hardest possible way to do it is to try to figure it out alone.

The 7 Steps to Funding, Producing, and Distributing Your Feature Film is our tried and true Filmmaker Success methodology. Throughout this two-day workshop, we’ll break things down into a step-by-step process that makes creating your film manageable and achievable. We’ll tackle common problems – some you may already be facing, some you may not expect. We’ll network, workshop, and brainstorm together, and each day will end with a Q&A with host and veteran producer, Joanne Butcher.
