Take Talks - Independent Distribution and Film Festivals

Take Talks is a panel discussion and networking series in Chicago with a goal to encourage you to take your career back into your own hands and discover actionable steps you can use in your film career. 

We interview and learn from successful filmmakers in Chicago who have been creating your favorite films, web series, and shorts. 

This series is a wonderful opportunity for networking in a relaxed environment and meeting other like-minded individuals.

December's Take Talks is all about independent distribution and film festivals! Learn about the various festivals, options to fit your project and how to troubleshoot and navigate the distribution world from our panelists who have been there and done that! 

December's Take Talk panelists: 
- Jess Levandoski (Middle Coast Film Festival, Adirondack Film Festival, Houston Cinema Arts Society)
- NK Gutierrez (Black Harvest Film Festival,Latino Film Festival)
- Jilliane A. Baumert (NetClique)

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the panel will begin promptly at 7 p.m.
