LOS ANGELES (September 4, 2019) – The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today key changes, in addition to the opening speakers for its 6th annual Produced By: New York on Saturday, November 9 at Florence Gould Hall in New York City. This year’s gathering arrives squarely during the pivotal awards race that will bring a diverse array of speakers, spanning the season’s buzziest films.

Scott Stuber, head of Netflix Film, will be the keynote speaker at the 2019 Produced By: New York conference and will be in conversation with Ron Howard, the Oscar-winning director and Co-founder and Chairman of Imagine Entertainment. Stuber will discuss with Howard what it’s like to build a new film studio, find global stories, discover new talent and be a key player in the ever-evolving ways in which entertainment is consumed by audiences around the world. Additionally, for the first time ever, Produced By: New York will host eight unique masterclasses, each providing attendees a deep dive into the art and craft behind some of the biggest and boldest contenders in the 2019 awards season. 

The ticket price schedule is as follows:
