Thompson on Hollywood

The Produced By Conference is growing, adding scale and scope and --it hopes--enough participants to make back its costs. After starting out at Sony and moving to Fox last summer, this year's installment of PBC, co-chaired by Marshall Herskovitz, Gale Anne Hurd and Rachel Klein, will take place at Disney and ABC from June 3-5, partnered with AFCI’s Locations Show on the same weekend. Speakers include Sean Bailey, Mark Gordon, indieWIRE editor-in-chief Dana Harris, Mark Johnson, Damon Lindelof, Lauren Shuler Donner, John Sloss, Ricky Strauss and Harvey Weinstein.

The full list of speakers is below.

The 2011 PBC reaches across film, television and new media with over 20 conference sessions, panels, mentoring roundtables and workshops. Among the topics to be covered are global finance, producer/director collaboration, distribution, independent film, scripted television, reality television, digital content and brand identity. Over 150 exhibitors and sponsors are on board. The AFCI Locations will bring in more than 300 film commissions from around the world which collectively represent over $2 billion in financing and incentives for filmmakers.

More than 1,100 producers attended last year, asserts the PGA. More information is at ProducedByConference.com.
