Washington, DC -- The NAB Show is expanding its programs and initiatives for filmmakers, providing the Hollywood creative and production communities with an increasing number of education and networking opportunities. The Show is joining forces with leading Hollywood unions, guilds and organizations to develop conference programming and offer a new Filmmakers Lounge and targeted tours of the exhibit hall at the NAB Show, April 9-14 in Las Vegas.
Partner groups include the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Science and Technology Council, American Cinema Editors (ACE), American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA), International Cinematographers Guild Local 600 (ICG), and Visual Effects Society (VES). These strategic alliances are helping fuel the participation of high-level speakers in the Content Theater (where the NAB Show examines Hollywood's most innovative productions) and form the basis of a new programming initiative: the Content Conference.
The new Content Conference features educational sessions on current issues and trends in feature film, TV and small screen production. Led by renowned filmmakers, artists and technologists, the sessions focus on the latest tools and techniques in virtual onset production, new color workflows for digital filmmakers, mobile and sports content creation, genre and low budget filmmaking and more.
NAB Show attendees will have the opportunity to relax and network in the new Filmmaker's Lounge, located in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Conventions Center. Access to the lounge will be reserved for attendees showing membership to a Hollywood union, guild, association or related organization.
Representatives from Hollywood partner groups will also lead guided tours of the NAB Show exhibit hall. Tours will focus on products and technologies introduced at the 2011 NAB Show that will significantly impact the production process. Space on tours is limited and may be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis for qualified attendees.
