In 2001 and again in 2008, we discussed the demise of intelligent films for adults. Fortunately for us, smart films continue to be made. Challenges and disruptions still exist, however, and new platforms create fear for theatrical exhibitors; there is a dearth of art house theaters in major markets like New York and San Francisco, and with ancillary markets in flux, sustainability is a challenge. Join our panel of industry experts who will discuss ways to ensure independent cinema’s continued productivity.

Invited Guests to date: 
JONATHAN KING oversees development and production of Participant’s narrative feature films.
CHAZ EBERT is a producer and is the President of the Ebert Company, as well as Ebert Digital, LLC.
ED ARENTZ, Greenwich Entertainment, Free Solo
STEVE FARNETH, Head of Finance, Senior Executive at Cinetic Media
