I’m extremely pleased to announce that Stage 32 has been named as the official film networking and education platform of the American Film Market.


As you know, we are big supporters of AFM and all they do to connect producers, financiers and distributors all over the world. To be recognized in such fashion is truly an honor and I thank head honcho, Jonathan Wolf, not only for all the support, but for his friendship as well.

In an effort to give back to the film community, we are offering all attendees who sign up for an AFM badge a FREE Stage 32 Next Level Webinar to assist in furthering their careers.

Additionally, I’m please to say I’ll be returning to the stage at AFM as well. As part of the Financing Conference II: Funding Films Today program, I’ll be moderating the Producing Studio Films With Independent Budgets panel on Sunday, November 6th at 9:15am. This will be a lively and informative panel you won’t want to miss. And, of course, if you’re in attendance, please say hello.

And finally, it’s looking more and more likely that my book on film crowdsourcing will be published in the first half of 2017 by Focal Press under the American Film Market imprint. It was quite the honor to be commissioned to write this book, but the fact that it will be associated with AFM makes it doubly so! 

Hope to see you at the market and conference!
