|Make Film is a new exciting platform organised by
Non-Multiplex Cinema, to inspire filmmakers to go out and make film. Orson Welles once said that “movie making is the only art form where the artist can’t afford the material for his art.” Well, that is not true anymore. Prosumer cameras can now shoot films that could grace any cinema. Crowd sourcing has established itself as a viable alternative to raising funds for the first time filmmaker. There are plenty of exciting avenues in online distribution and exhibition, opening up doors to getting your film seen by a worldwide audience. There are also expanding world film markets becoming major players. It was February of this year when for the first time, China outgrossed the US in revenue income from movies.
Make Film features a panel of diverse knowledge, experience and insights from their personal journeys about how you too can go out and make films in today’s climate. The hope is that with their help and the people that you meet at the event, that it will inspire you with a can do attitude on to great things.Enquiries:
