If you have a love for cinema, then you may want to take a trip out to California. But before you move out west to become an aspiring actor/actress, be sure to check out the American Film Market & Conferences.
Taking place on a beautiful campus overlooking the water in Santa Monica, California, the American Film Market and Conferences will feature buyers and investors of the arts. Additionally, there will be special industry events, discussions and many other ways to get your name out there. The festivals' best selling point is that it is exactly 6 months after the Cannes film festival - allowing those in attendance to not be distracted and to be "ready for business." With better weather than Cannes and a more centralized location, there's very few reasons not to attend the festival.
So be sure to bring your promotional products and get ready to meet the film industry's best of the best.
