Additional Event Info


This event is open to all that participate in the filmmaking process including writers, actors, production and post-production professionals, as well as those involved in distribution, finance, and academia. Even if you are just trying to figure out how to break into the business, this event is for you as it will be a great opportunity to network with those that are making it all happen.

We encourage each filmmaker/actor, etc., to bring headshots, contact cards, screeners, reels, links to work, writing samples, or any other information that you would like to distribute to the various participants. This is important as local filmmakers will be pitching their projects and looking for talent and crew to assist.

This event will be held at the beautiful Four Points Sheraton Hotel, (8110 Aero Drive, San Diego, CA 92123) conveniently located right off the freeway in Kearny Mesa where there is always plenty of free parking. Cocktail service will be available.
