For 48 HOURS only... Join over 81,000 filmmakers for
practical sessions on everything DIRECTING!
It's happening on September 12th and 13th.
As filmmaking continues to explode in both entertainment and education (plus the cost of professional equipment is coming down) the industry is becoming more and more competitive. You can no longer "rest on your laurels"... the key is watching what the master filmmakers are doing.
And that's exactly why we created the CineSummit, which has quickly become the world's LARGEST educational event for Filmmakers with over 80,000 attendees expected to attend CS7.
