St. Louis to Host the Region's Premiere Filmmaking Conference November 2
In Motion to host over 200 filmmakers on Nov 2nd in Downtown St. Louis
This one-day conference will afford both novice and professional filmmakers from St. Louis as well as the surrounding Midwest region the opportunity to learn from industry experts, network with peers, and participate in Continuity's ongoing efforts to expand diversity in film. All profits from In Motion will go to Continuity's programs. Attendees will hear from filmmakers whose films have played at Sundance and premiered on Netflix and national television. With a dozen more speakers yet to be announced, over 25 speakers have already committed including Damon Davis (director of "Whose Streets"), Stephanie Tobey (Producer of the Netflix documentary "Abducted in Plain Sight") and David Johnson (President of Coolfire Studios - Producers of "Fast N' Loud" & "Welcome to Sweetie Pies.") A Pitch Competition and Happy Hour networking event will round out the day's activities. Tickets are on sale now at www.inmotionconference.com.
"The support for the conference has truly blown away our expectations, and we continually hear from filmmakers 'Thank you so much for organizing this! Our region really needs it'," explains Dan Parris, Conference Director of In Motion and executive director of Continuity. Continuity is supported in the planning of the conference from a committee of eleven local artists and influencers.
In Motion is looking to fill volunteer slots and additional sponsors for the event, including the Presenting Sponsor of the conference. To inquire about these remaining opportunities, visit the contact page at www.inmotionconference.com.
