Important Update: Making Media Now has been rescheduled to the Spring of 2011. Filmmakers Collaborative felt that in order to make it the best conference possible, and to meet the expectations from attendees, speakers, sponsors, and trade show participants, that everyone would be better served with new date in the Spring. Filmmakers Collaborative is completely committed to Making Media Now, so please stay tuned for a new conference date. (added October 29, 2010).
