Raucous, overwhelming and desperately commercial, the American Film Market (AFM) is both the husky and the junkyard dog of screen sales. Tucked into AFM is a genuine respect for pragmatic thought and independent production.
In these weird times we have a chance to attend versions of the huge industry meets that are financially daunting, at least without flights and hotels. The AFM is no exception and the price may well be worth the wince. AU$460 is within range and most of us haven’t travelled to a conference since March last year. This conference is the King Hitter of Commerce.
