105. FILM FINANCING WITH CHICAGO MEDIA ANGELS

Finding, Persuading, and Efficiently Working with Film Investors

Professor: Mark Glassgow (He/Him)

This workshop will focus on three main themes:
1) How to attract investors to your project. This will include learning about ways first time filmmakers can get attention from buyers, how to market your film including understanding pitch decks, when to send your script, optimal ways to network, Film Festivals, and more.
2) Convincing potential funders to invest. This workshop will breakdown the benefits of film investment, and how to build trust with investors (hint: this helps with your pitch).
3) How to secure returning investors. We will also discuss distribution, and consider what happens after your film has been made. (1 hr 30 mins)
