Stage 32 and the American Film Market Join Forces for 2021

I'm thrilled to announce today that for the 6th straight year, Stage 32 and the American Film Market have joined forces to bring new opportunities and access to attendees of America's largest film market.

Stage 32 is proud to continue to be the official Networking and Education partner of the AFM and this year is extra special. For the second year in a row, the AFM has gone virtual.

So what does that mean for you?

More access and opportunity at the AFM no matter where you live in the world. I'm proud to call AFM's Head Honcho, Jonathan Wolf a friend (aptly titled Twitter @afmhoncho - go follow him!) and he is a firm advocate for independent cinema's filmmakers, producers and entrepreneurs and he brings that spirit seamlessly into each year's AFM. This year is no different, and he and his crew have kicked it up a notch. You will find more attendees, exhibitors, screenings, networking and education than ever before. It's truly an impressive lineup and you don't want to miss out.

It was because of Jonathan that my book, Crowdsourcing for Filmmakers: Indie Film and the Power of the Crowd was published under the American Film Market Presents Banner. Very few titles receive such an honor and I couldn't be more grateful.
