2015 Weekend Seminar Schedule

IFP Phoenix

IFP/Phoenix-Sponsored FREE Seminars

IFP Phoenix sponsors the educational seminars during the Phoenix Film Festival weekend. All sessions are FREE unless otherwise noted. (All sessions on this page are free!)

This year we turn our seminar panels upside down, literally! We start with a one-word theme and then challenge our panelists to address those themes in the context of six of our most popular panels.

“Our guest panelists come from the roster of talented filmmakers whose works were chosen to screen at the 2015 Phoenix Film Festival. Panel hosts include Phoenix Film Festival alumni filmmakers who return year after year as friends of the Festival.”

– Joe Gruberman, Seminar Director, Phoenix Film Festival
