Sea to Sky | Totally Indie Day
SAT, Sept. 29 3:00PM – 4:00PM

Add to this the difficulties in securing a distribution deal in the current marketplace – this is not for the faint hearted! Our three "auteurs" at different stages of their careers share insights and lessons learned as they debut their first and second films.
