The AFM Sessions — Offer attendees knowledge, insight and a rare opportunity to hear from the industry’s global thought leaders, decision makers and experts through a series of conferences, panels and conversations.

The AFM also gives you the benefit of insider conversations about where the marketplace is headed. New for 2022, The AFM Sessions have moved from the Fairmont to inside the Loews Hotel making it easy for you to sit in on panels between meetings and networking.  We have put together a strong lineup of timely topics and discussions, including:

  • Film Finance Strategies for Today’s VOD Dominated World
  • Forecasting the Future for Independent Film
  • Theatrical Marketplace Recovery for Independent Films
  • Independent Features with Big Profit Potential

AFM will bring more than 30 topics and 100+ speakers to its two stages.  Stay tuned for speaker announcements in the coming weeks.
