I really enjoyed my time at Film-Com. The people were cool, the staff helpful and the execs I met very encouraging. The contacts I made should really help get my project to the next level. Thanks guys.

Hi Andy. Hope things are well with you in Music City. I’m embarrassed to think how many weeks have passed since Film-Com, but I wanted to thank you personally for hosting and facilitating our attendance. I’ve enjoyed your guests, programs, and parties each time I’ve been in attendance, but this year took on a more profound and serious note, as I pitched my feature film “Hoop Street”. I’m happy to report that I have one committed Financier and one Finishing Funds Financier as a result of the panel discussions and networking in which I participated! (Still working on that last 1/3 of the budget – but that’s a discussion for another day.) Film-Com has helped me learn “the business of The Business” – and I am genuinely grateful for you for your role making it happen. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to speak to you in person; I’m sure you were as busy as always – but please know I inquired and wished you well. Hopefully, we can catch up over refreshments in the near future.

Thanks again for all you do!
Shelby

Fim-Com is a fabulous opportunity for film makers that are just an inch short from completion!! I not only gathered experience but learned a lot about distribution, finance and relationships. Getting that much exposure amongst my peers was great and the panels and seminars is a “must” to someone who is serious about making it in this very difficult business.

At Dangerous Muse Productions, we want to congratulate Film-Com 2012 for producing a first rate filmmaker event. As returning participants, we are able to comment directly on the various improvements we experienced this year. The New Project Expo, the new Direct Presentation setup, the dual track Film Business Panel discussion, and the Networking Breakfasts combined to produce an exceptional opportunity for us to learn from, and interact with, established industry professionals. We experienced very real and very tangible results from this years Film-Com. We will undoubtedly participate again.

Many thanks to all of the volunteers and sponsors that contributed to the smooth and effectual running of this First Class event. We highly recommend it for novice and experienced independent filmmakers alike.

You made it possible for me to meet and pitch TV execs I would never have gotten to otherwise. I know lots of people worked long and hard to make this happen and I’m grateful to all.

This is my second year at Film-com and I can already see it growing into an important market for fresh projects, and Nashville growing into a less expensive alternative to the coasts for production.

I not only met open and accessible producers, agents and execs, I made some great connections with other creators from all over the country.

Thank you all so much, looking forward to Film-com 2013

What an incredible experience that I could not be more thrilled to have been a part of. My team and I came away really feeling like we well exceeded our goals and ambitions for the conference. With inspirational stories, experienced guidance, and informative talks from the attending executives, my team and I returned home with a rekindled fire in our bellies to continue chasing our dreams and never, ever stop that pursuit. And we also enjoyed some of the best omelets of our lives!

I really appreciate all the work that went into making Film-Com a success. It is no easy feat putting on an event like that. It helped me get my project noticed and I made several valuable connections. I also received feedback that my project is really funny – which is good since it is a comedy.

My partners, Stuart Goodman of Boynton Beach, Florida , Steven Peros of Los Angeles and I, the producers of Lifetime’s 2013 A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS STORY starring Dolly Parton, Brian McKnight and Mary Kay Place would like to thank and applaud Film-Com. We came together in Nashville as a team and presented to Film-Com in 2012. We credit Film-Com for giving the project a renewed momentum so that we could successfully pitch it to television networks.

Those People

In addition to a Hollywood executive asking for the Those People script (movie form), a network is interested in pushing it to their syndication dept as an episodic. Have had dialogue about a doc for air, as well with a requested proposal package from me.

A renewed acquaintance at a network is awaiting a pitch package.

I think Film-com is great because it is designed in such a way that creates the context to connect with potential buyers and industry professionals. Practically in just a few days you have the opportunity to get a complete feed-back from each participant. It is great!

Film-Com is a MUST for any serious filmmaker seeking funding or distribution. Film-Com puts you face to face with the industry’s movers and shakers. It was our first time giving an “official pitch” to a room full of industry execs and we had interest from a major studio before we were even done. We are now working about half a dozen serious leads that came from our visit to Film-Com

Dear Film-com,

Please accept my sincere thanks for your time and advice in the review of \”Forgotten\: MIA in New Guinea\” documentary concepts and filming completion.

It is my continued hope that film efforts on \”Forgotten, MIA in New Guinea\” will eventually facilitate the recovery and return of this bomber crew. The Film-Com exposure was a hopeful milestone.

Film-Com is correctly recognized as a tremendous opportunity to network, learn and market.

Film-Com was exceptional. It gave me a tremendous access to industry professionals who actually listened to what we had to say and seemed to really care about the projects that were the official selection by Film-Com. In addition the industry professionals had amazing suggestions and I personally made 3 amazing connections that I know will be life long as well as well as being given the opportunity to have done a serious pitch, that has turned out to be beneficial for my documentary film.
