The first night of MPI and FEE's Filmmaking and Entrepreneurship seminar.
Another Year, Another Successful Filmmaking and Entrepreneurship Seminar!
In March, nearly 30 young creatives from around the world joined the Moving Picture Institute and FEE in Los Angeles for our fourth annual Filmmaking and Entrepreneurship Seminar. Aspiring filmmakers learned that they can make a living, and even change the world, by telling pro-freedom stories.
Learning directly from professional filmmakers in the Moving Picture Institute network, attendees explored how to break into the industry, make the most of their first Hollywood jobs, find and market to film audiences, and more. Though the seminar largely took place at the Moving Picture Institute's West Los Angeles office, attendees also enjoyed a studio tour and an off-site screening night of MPI's short films.
Our attendees gave the seminar a average overall experience rating of 9.7/10. Here's what they had to say:
"I traveled all the way from Ecuador for this seminar, and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made."
"I really loved discussing filmmaking with professionals in the filmmaking community. That's an opportunity I didn't get elsewhere, even in film school."
"The Filmmaking and Entrepreneurship Seminar didn't just calm my fears [about making a living as a filmmaker], it gave me the tools to share my liberty-loving art with the masses, and I cannot express my gratitude enough."
