What's new? Meet the Programmers

Activities and Events

Where should you screen your world premiere? Which programmers are most likely to appreciate your film? There are a mind-boggling number of considerations and strategies, and they can be exasperating and confusing. Here’s an opportunity to see the inner workings of the process.
