3rd Annual IFP Week Sept 15-20

IFP’s signature event, IFP Week, is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with both new and revamped public programs for the 2018 edition. Taking place from September 15-20, 2018, alumni from across four decades of the organization’s history are coming together to review careers, discuss the state of the film and media industries, and debate the future of storytelling. This year’s programs include numerous public screenings and talks, all centered on cutting-edge independent content for the big screen and the small screen.  IFP’s public programs are the perfect place to meet and interact with creatives pushing the boundaries of storytelling on all platforms.
