A Multi-Day Event

10+ Seminars. Live Chat. All Virtual. Free to Attend.

If you are a filmmaker looking to launch your project or dive into a full-time career in the industry, you’ll love Filmmaking Central’s Cinema Summit events.

The film industry is notoriously secretive. And yes, it’s annoying! We are fixing that.

Over the course of a multi-day summit, we will dive-deep into topics you can’t find info on anywhere else.

We bring you industry professionals to share their knowledge and experience in an interactive learning experience.

Plus, added bonus, because our summits are entirely virtual they have almost no carbon footprint. No plane tickets, no rental cars, no hotel fees. Watch and participate from the comfort of your home.

Reality Check

Feature Films Made

On average, there are 2,577 new feature films made each year.

Submitted to Sundance

Released in Theaters

In 2017, a staggering 821 movies were released in theaters.

How many will you make this year?

Feature Films Made

Unlike other art forms, filmmaking isn’t a solitary endeavor. Musicians can sit at a piano and write entire concert pieces. Painters can lock themselves in a room with paints and create masterpieces. But filmmakers can’t grab a camera and make an entire film. Movies are a collaboration of many artists and it requires a community of other fearless filmmakers to bring your vision into reality.

Join our next live summit, learn the ropes, blaze your path, and become a part of our community of thousands of like-minded filmmakers.

"I love independent filmmaking. I don't agree with a lot of it, but that's the point."

How much does a summit cost to attend ?

Nothing! Our summits are 100% free to attend. All presentations will be available for you to watch for 24 hours. After that, we will save the presentations in our All-Access Vault. Only members who purchase a VIP All-Access Pass will be able to unlock the content for life!

Do I have to go somewhere to attend ?

If by “go somewhere” you mean from your bed to the computer, then yes. Anything else is your choice! These summits are virtual, meaning they happen online. You can watch and participate from anywhere in your house, or anywhere in the world with internet access.

What am I going to get out of this ?

That’s entirely up to you. Many people absorb a training and then never take action on any of the advice. Others go crazy and implement everything they can right away. In short, you get out of it what you put into it. (So you decide)

What comes with the All-Access Pass ?

You’ll get lifetime access to all of the replay videos. But wait, there’s more!

You’ll also get access to all of the worksheets, sample documents, templates, and bonuses listed on the purchase page. Be sure to check it out!

Do you give the speakers my info ?

No, we don’t think that’s fair. If you want to give your info to the speaker by opting in to their program or free giveaway, that’s your call! But we won’t give your info to anyone that you don’t agree to yourself.

I need more help, can I contact you ?

Sure! See that little bubble on the bottom righthand corner of the screen? If you click on that you’ll be prompted to either start a chat or leave a message depending on when you reach out.

Are you ready to finally reach your full potential as an independent filmmaker?
