We’ve announced the 10 feature film projects and the lineup of industry decision-makers that will participate in the fourth edition of the world’s only LGBTQ Film Finance Forum.
To continue to offer this necessary support to filmmakers during isolation, Inside Out will be launching the forum as a fully digital event to take place May 26-29, 2020.
Along with Inside Out Finance Forum regulars like Britain’s Bankside Films, the U.S.’s Killer Films, and France’s MK2, new companies taking one-on-one meetings with the 2020 creative teams include: Netflix (Presenting Partner of the Forum), Bleecker Street (U.S.), Bohemia Media (U.K.), Films Boutique (Germany), Gamechanger Films (U.S.), IFC/Sundance Selects/IFC Midnight (U.S.), MAD Solutions (Egypt), Mainstay Entertainment (U.S.), The Population (U.S.), Powderkeg Studios (U.S.), XYZ (U.S.) and Verve (U.S.). GLAAD will also be taking meetings with the creative teams.
“We’ve seen incredible steps forward in intersectional, LGBTQ representation in TV series and episodic content, but that success hasn’t had a visible impact on feature financing – despite the fact that both episodic and feature content are being shown on the same platforms.”
– Andria Wilson, Executive Director
Read the exclusive announcement and an interview with our executive director Andria Wilson and director of programming Andrew Murphy at Variety.
The Finance Forum provides LGBTQ-identified producers and/or producers creating LGBTQ content an opportunity to pitch their projects directly to top decision makers. All participating executives will be taking one-on-one meetings with the creative teams.
Being home to the first LGBTQ finance forum of its kind in the world, Inside Out’s goal is to put LGBTQ creators in front of decision makers, as well as to create a dedicated space for LGBTQ filmmakers to receive the connection and support they need.
