The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes have highlighted the need for dramatic changes in the film industry – and, as if often the case, independent filmmakers are leading the charge for more equity, innovations, and calls for change. This year’s FilmNorth Forum focuses on Envisioning a New Independent Film Ecosystem, anchored by our Keynote Conversation with independent film icons and innovators Ted Hope and Effie Brown.

With generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the St. Paul Cultural STAR Program, FilmNorth is able to hold this year’s Forum free of charge. More info and registration here.
