LOS ANGELES (November 2, 2010) – The Producers Guild of America (PGA) and the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) announced today that the 2011 Produced By Conference (PBC) will be held in conjunction with AFCI’s Locations Trade Show June 3-5, 2011. More details about the event will be released early next year.
Reaching across film, television and new media industries, PBC is an educational forum that attracted more than 1,100 people last year and involves acclaimed producers, including countless Academy Award®-winning filmmakers and Emmy® Award winners, as well as the next generation of creative entrepreneurs. The annual AFCI Locations Trade Show is the largest worldwide gathering of film commissions.
“The Produced By Conference is an important initiative for the Guild as it brings together our amazing producer community for two days of learning and networking. By partnering with AFCI we hope that PBC will be an even more invaluable experience,” said PGA President Emeritus and PBC Event Co-Chair Marshall Herskovitz. “We’re excited to build upon last year’s wildly successful program, and we believe our collaboration with AFCI will enhance learning opportunities and provide the increasingly important global perspective,” added PBC Event Co-Chair Gale Anne Hurd. Rachel Klein will also serve as co-chair of next year’s PBC event.
