Indie market's latest offering targets experienced bizzers

The American Film Market will bow the AFM Producers Forum at this year’s market, targeting established producers with 16 sessions with experts and networking opportunities. Topics will touch on global production issues and each sessions will be followed by a private networking reception.

“The new AFM Producers Forum will provide experienced producers with knowledge on a wide range of topics that are most important to working professionals along with exclusive social activities.” said Jonathan Wolf, AFM managing director, in a statement. “We are looking forward to hosting the global film industry’s best and brightest with this new program.”
