Winston Baker Finance Forum to Feature ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Still Alice’ Producers

Winston Baker’s seventh annual TV and Film Finance Forum East for investors and film and TV executives will take place April 14 at the Dream hotel in downtown Manhattan.

The one-day forum, of which Variety is a sponsor, features notable entertainment professionals such as producers Christine Vachon (“Still Alice”) and John Sloss (“Boyhood”), and financiers Dan Steinman (“The Imitation Game,” “Birdman”) and Wayne Marc Godfrey (“Cake,” “Silence”).

Sloss, founder of Cinetic Media, will deliver a keynote conversation on the value of financing independent films. In addition to being a producer of “Boyhood,” “Boys Don’t Cry” and “The Fog of War,” among others, Sloss is an entertainment lawyer, talent manager and film sales agent.

Rounding out the forum are producers, packaging agents and distribution executives of films including “The Imitation Game,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “12 Years a Slave” and “Black Swan,” along with investors in leading film and television companies such as Legendary, Lakeshore and Alcon. The forum takes place one day before the start of the Tribeca Film Festival.
