How it works:
We will open a limited amount of guaranteed seats for a handful of panels for the 2018 Conference. If you do not make the Advance Sign-up list, there is still a possibility of a seat at the panel, it will just be on a first come, first serve basis.
Note: Advance Sign-Ups are open to Producer Badge holders only.
Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook and sign up for our weekly newsletter for future Advance Sign-Up news! All speakers and events are based on permitting schedules and subject to change and/or cancellation without notice.
Advance Sign-up: The Women in the Room
Women make up a small percentage of writers in Hollywood, and working toward a full-time career in the industry requires a lot of flexibility and persistence. While this can certainly lend itself to a demanding journey, female artists are continuously changing the landscape of film and television for the better. At AFF’s first Conference in 1994, we featured a panel discussion titled Women and Film: Gender, Power, and Opportunity featuring Lynda Obst, Freyda Rothstein, Linda Woolverton, and Ronda Gomez. Every year since this inaugural discussion, we’re proud to host a conversation with the leading women in television, film, and new media. Come chat with these devoted writers about their stories, viewpoints, and advice. Advance Sign-ups are now closed!
Advance Sign-up: Script to Screen: The Disaster Artist
Join Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter as they discuss their Academy Award-nominated adaptation of The Disaster Artist. Join them for a discussion on blending a shot-for-shot remake of the original film with the Greg Sestero novel, the research that goes into a thoughtful biopic, and the strange but hilarious story behind Tommy Wiseau’s cult film.
Advance Sign-ups are available to any current Producer’s Badge holders.
This advance sign-up is now closed.
