Directors are artists, but they’re often called upon to be salespeople too, particularly if they’re trying to fund a pet project. Moderator Robert Denerstein will lead a panel in which three directors will be given 10 minutes each to pitch a film they’d like to make. The audience will have 10 additional minutes for questions before being asked to discuss and vote on the pitches. Only one film will get the green light. The idea is to have some fun—but also to provide insight into the vagaries that can determine what’s playing at a theater near you.
