Today was the kickoff for the NRB 2015 convention with an emphasis on faith and films.  I always love NRB, but this year’s summit exceeded my expectations. What an amazing plethora of speakers with so much experience and wisdom to share.

The day began with a Pitch-a-Thon where screenwriters and filmmakers had opportunity to pitch their ideas, scripts, or finished products to distributors.

After lunch filmmakers got to participate in a full schedule of panel discussions and workshops led by Hollywood producers, writers, directors, and more.

And, of course, one of the great things about the convention is the networking among colleagues and friendships formed. Looking forward to meeting many more filmmaking folks tomorrow.
