Speaking Opportunities

AFM Programs & Events Speaking Opportunities


Thank you for your interest in speaking opportunities at AFM 2022. Below is an overview followed by a Speaker Submission Form.

Conferences offer attendees knowledge, insight and a rare opportunity to hear from the industry’s global thought leaders, decision makers and experts. Conferences may include finance, production, distribution, television and pitching.

Panels are open-ended discussions that explore specialized topics and timely issues. Past topics have included Seizing the Moment: Producing LGBTQ Content in a Time of Unprecedented Visibility; Producing Passion Documentaries; and Respecting the Genre: Why Some Horror Films Work While Others Don’t.

Companies and organizations have the opportunity to program their own 90 minute session during AFM 2022.  To explore hosting a session (fees apply), contact Robin at rburt@ifta-online.org or +1.310.446.1020.

Submission Process
To submit a speaker for consideration, please complete the form below. Our team will contact you beginning in July if a session appears to be a good match or if we have any questions. Due to the high volume of requests, we may not be able to respond to all speaker submissions. Please note that AFM does not provide fees or travel support to our speakers.
