The Producers Guild of America and the Association of Film Commissioners Intl. have agreed to hold next year’s Produced By Conference in conjunction with AFCI’s Locations Trade Show on June 3-5.
The orgs made the joint annoucement Tuesday and said more details about the conference will be released early next year.
The PGA’s conference drew more than 1,100 people in June to the Fox lot in its second iteration. The first PGA conference was held on the Sony lot.
The AFCI event has been held in Santa Monica but hadn’t announced its location yet.
“The Produced By Conference is an important initiative for the Guild as it brings together our amazing producer community for two days of learning and networking,” said Marshall Herskovitz, president emeritus of the PGA and conference co-chair. “By partnering with AFCI we hope that PBC will be an even more invaluable experience.”
Gale Anne Hurd and Rachel Klein are also serving as co-chairs for the PGA event. The PGA has about 4,500 members.
“The ability for producers and the industry to network with commissioners that are providing over $2.5 billion in annual funding around the world is a perfect synergy for the entertainment community,” said AFCI CEO Lawrence Brownell.
