The Producers Guild of America announces the winners of its Producers Showcase (ProShow) competition, in conjunction with their Produced By Conference. The ProShow aims to "help film producers initiate business relationships, co-develop compelling projects and spearhead investment involving the producing community, a panel of financiers, as well as local and international film commissions."
The ten winning projects, listed below, will attend the PBC for free and benefit from an exclusive industry marketplace for their films.
