Accelerate your career relationships. Join us for an interactive 70-minute session of roundtable discussions offering unique opportunities for learning and professional exchange. Get direct access to funders, agents, managers, labels, producers, talent buyers and festivals. Come prepared to engage in in-depth discussions, give and receive targeted feedback, meet colleagues with similar interests, and learn from the questions and experiences of your peers.
