If you are interested in doing a brief, informal presentation on what you consider to be best practices in audience engagement, community development, and DIY/DWO distribution in a round table format, we can still accomodate. You must be willing to give a presentation in order to attend.

There may be opportunity for filmmakers to present via Skype or FaceTime for those unable to attend in person, however, in-person attendance is preferred. Participation is limited to filmmakers who will contribute. TFC will summarize the learnings and communicate them after the summit.
