Breaking Through

Sea to Sky | Totally Indie Day

Breaking Through

SAT, Sept. 29 3:00PM – 4:00PM

Getting an indie film off the ground can be challenging, but when you’re an auteur, there are different hurdles and opportunities that come with taking on this most demanding of dual roles. 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.
