For those who didn't see the latest IFP newsletter, I'll be taking part in one of their newest initiatives, the Trans Atlantic Partners (TAP)
IFP is proud to announce the fellows for its newest initiative for independent producers, TRANS ATLANTIC PARTNERS (TAP). A three-module, intensive training and networking Program for producers from the U.S., Europe, and Canada, Trans Atlantic Partners will allow select producers from New York City, Europe and Canada to participate in an intensive, year-long series of training and networking programs, including workshops in Berlin, at IFP’s Independent Film Week and Strategic Partners, Canada’s premier international co-production event. IFP’s inaugural fellows are: Nekisa Cooper (Pariah), Jennifer Dubin & Cora Olson (Good Dick), Jared Moshe (Beautiful Losers), Amy Rapp (Return), Ron Simons (Night Catches Us), and Christine Walker (Howl). IFP Mentors providing their industry expertise during Trans Atlantic Partners are John Hadity, Lars Knudsen & Jay Van Hoy, and Wilder Knight.
As filmmaker who has been learning how to navigate the international waters of film financing and production, I am incredibly excited about the opportunity. I'll try to keep folks updated on the experience on this blog.
