Finding, Choosing & Hiring A DP - Panel & Mixer
Co-Presented by Alliance of Women Directors, International Collective of Female Cinematographers and Light Iron this event will feature a moderated panel discussion and q&a with feature film directors Trish Sie (PITCH PERFECT 3) and Lexi Alexander (PUNISHER:WAR ZONE), Producer Romell Foster-Owens (FIRST LOVE) and Cinematographers Sandra Valde-Hansen (WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD) and Nancy Schreiber, ASC (MAPPLETHORPE), only woman to receive the ASC President's Award. Panel will be moderated by Jen McGowan (KELLY & CAL). Topic of discussion will include: the finding, upselling and hiring of cinematographers.
The goal of this event is to help DPs better understand what goes into their selection and hiring, to introduce Producers & Directors to women DPs and to get Producers & Directors to better understand how to look at & frame DPs work so they can get women DPs greenlit more often.
After the panel there will be a mixer where drinks will be provided. ICFC DP reels will be played on a loop in the background at the venue.
Everyone in attendance will be given color-coded name tags at the door and asked to wear them to facilitate networking. Color coding will reflect filmmaker’s primary role of Director, DP, Producer or Other.
