EVENT: IFFF TownHall Meeting 12/14

[Mike’s Comments:] I’ve personally attended this event on previous occasion and found it both lively and informative. The seminars unusually get about 50-100 attendees and it’s also a great networking event as well. Get to meet the people in the Indie Film Biz that have done it and continue to be successful. Also find sources for funding and other necessary support.
