These events are targeted at all levels of filmmakers. They provide networking opportunities as well as valuable and practical information about the business of filmmaking. 



Some people believe that you must either be a mathematician or a magician (or both!) to successfully conjure up a comprehensive film budget. But don’t let the numbers intimidate you. This Women Make Movies webinar, led by Emmy-nominated producer Ann Bennett, will take a step-by-step approach to identifying and analyzing the creative and logistical components necessary to build your film’s line item budget. Constructing a realistic budget requires an intricate dance between time, money, and resources. How to Create a Comprehensive Budget will give you the skills and even a little swagger so that you can create budgets likes the pros. You will never fear the budgeting process again! Register now.

***If you are unable to participate live, a recording of this webinar will be emailed to all registrants and available for three months after the recording is posted.
