Women Behind the Scenes
The statistics aren’t getting much better, and everyone wants to know what it’s going to take to level the playing field.  We’ll hear from a distinguished group of highly-successful women – a director, producer, cinematographer, production designer, showrunner and studio executive who have risen among the ranks in a male-dominated industry.  What have their journeys been like, what have been their biggest challenges and where have they found their greatest sources of support?  New programs are in place to support women’s creative careers, it’s being talked about in the media, efforts are being made to balance the scales… but when is better going to be better enough?

Rachel Shane, Chief Creative Officer, MWM Studios (formerly OddLot Ent.)

Loren Yaconelli, Cinematographer
Jeannine Oppewall, Production Designer

Film Festivals – A Primer
This panel of experts will focus on different types of festivals, which ones to enter, how to enter, whay you can expect and how to make the most of the opportunities film festivals have to offer.  Discover how (if done right) exhibiting your films at festivals can jump start your career!

The Magic of Visual Effects
We'll draw the curtain back to reveal what it takes to create VFX shots that look believable and have the power to transport you to other worlds.  We'll explore how technology has advanced this facet of film making and why it's becoming more mainstream, more affordable and more realistic.

The California Golden Slate Award will be presented to NCIS Executive Producer Mark Horowitz.  This award honors an individual who champions filming in California.
