The transition from film school to the working world can be tough. Will a degree and some great student projects lead to a career in filmmaking? Must a filmmaker move to LA or New York, or can a successful career be sustained here in the Bay Area? Keynote speaker Tiffany Shlain will set the stage for a discussion of education and opportunity, and panelists Mark Decena, Rob Epstein, Barry Jenkins, Lexi Leban and Jenni Olson will share their experiences and stories of how they’ve sustained their careers over time and made the Bay Area their city of choice for filmmaking. Network with promising filmmakers from numerous Bay Area film schools and celebrate today’s emerging talents with the first-ever SFFS Colleges & Universities screening of a selection of the best student work being produced in the Bay Area. The evening will feature audience-award voting with prizes including classes and consulting services. SFFS Filmmaker Education Manager Michael A. Behrens will moderate the panel discussion.
