We at the Creative Cinema Collective are well aware of the difficulties present
in breaking into the film industry.
A lack of funding. Not having the right connections. No distribution channels. If
your film is completed, then having no idea where to take out film once you’re
done with the film festival and YouTube circuit.
In the CCC, you will learn not only to make films better, but how to market them.
We will train you to become entrepreneurs, not just filmmakers. You’ll learn to
organize a production house, develop marketing plans and pitch for funds – all
necessary skills for a career in filmmaking.
That’s the purpose of the CCC: to shift the next generation of filmmakers from
job seekers to job creators, by provide you the necessary entrepreneurship
tools and that vital foothold in the international film industry.
In Phase 3 of the CCC, you will also get to Qingdao, China, the host city for the
Hera International Film Festival, and meet n’ mingle with filmmakers, celebrities,
and film industry professionals.
The workshop in China will be led by the Professor Christopher Coppola, the
Artistic Director of the CCC (yes, he is related to the famous Francis Ford
Coppola). The entrepreneurship support is provided by the European
Confederation of Junior Enterprises (JADE), represented by Albey Alpizar.
In addition, your pitches and marketing plans will be scrutinized by our very
own shark tank.
