AFCI & Entertainment Partners Reception with Industry Finance and Tax Executives

Venue: SLS Hotel

This event is exclusively for AFCI Week participants and is co-hosted by Entertainment Partners. Tax and finance executives play a significant role in the location decision-making process. This event provides a perfect environment for business-to-business networking. Territories without incentives are certainly not at a deficit as each jurisdiction has its own pros with respect to production budgets – crew rates and costs such as accommodation, location permits and fees vary greatly from region to region.

Pre-Awards Networking Event at the Film Independent Spirit Awards

Venue: Santa Monica, by the Pier

AFCI members will have access to the prestigious Pre-Awards Reception of the Film Independent Spirit Awards. Award Shows are sit down events that don’t make for easy networking, so we’ve negotiated access to the exclusive and highly sought after pre-event reception. In order to maximize connectivity, AFCI Member presence at the event will be highlighted through information (provided on transportation to the Awards), signage at the event and differentiating market on the event registration badges.
