PGA WEST Education Committee presents

How to Work the Film & TV Markets

How to Work the Film & TV Markets offers practical advice and current insights to help independent producers optimize their chances for success at film and television markets around the world – from Cannes, AFM and EFM (Berlin) to MIPTV/MIPCOM, NAPTE and ReelScreen.

Discover which markets are best for which projects – and at what stages.  Get help prioritizing, calendaring, budgeting and executing a sound plan of attack for each event. Learn key networking approaches and promotional tactics that are proven to deliver the best results before, during and after each market.

Follow step-by-step instructions and sample calendars to strategize everything from high profile, star-driven independent features and scripted series to reality TV and ultra-low budget, DIY-distribution genre movie concepts and issue-driven documentaries.

Established veterans and industry disrupters alike will share insider advice, dos and don’ts and illustrative anecdotes from every angle of the marketplace, so attendees can make the most of their investments of time, money and creative energy (and avoid making critical mistakes first-hand).


Parking is available on the lot. You must have a valid photo identification to gain access to the lot. 

This event is free for PGA members only, no guests.
