The Independent Filmmaker Project has revealed the public programming for the upcoming, 42nd IFP Week, taking place virtually from Sept. 20-25.
The first four days of the week will feature film and TV programming, with the last two days devoted to audio programming.
This year IFP will feature panels with the teams behind two September Netflix releases The Devil All the Time and I’m Thinking of Ending Things. The first panel will feature Devil All the Time director/writer Antonio Campos, writer Paulo Campos and author Donald Ray Pollock discussing the adaptation process while the latter will feature a conversation with I’m Thinking of Ending Things producers Anthony Bregman, Stefanie Azpiazu and Bob Salerno about the Charlie Kaufman film.
There will also be a conversation moderated by Soledad O’Brien featuring The Way I See It director Dawn Porter and other storytellers discussing how to communicate impactful accounts to audiences; a talk about the future of New York City theaters and movie experiences featuring Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Gina Duncan and Metrograph’s Aliza Ma, moderated by Nitehawk’s Caryn Coleman; a panel about what’s next for film festivals as both traditional theatergoing and physical film festivals have been upended by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Other high-profile figures participating in panel discussions include Phillip Youmans (Burning Cane), Radha Blank (The Forty-Year-Old Version), Channing Godfrey Peoples and Neil Creque Williams (Miss Juneteenth), Amanda McBaine and Jesse Moss (Boys State), James Lebrecht and Nicole Newnham (Crip Camp) and Kirsten Johnson (Dick Johnson is Dead).
There will also be a panel with the music teams behind Little Fires Everywhere and The Eddy and a conversation among the female showrunners of The Stranger, Mixed-ish and Self Made.
“As the need for storytelling remains a priority and necessity, we open the 42nd annual IFP Week in remarkable, challenging and changed times,” IFP executive director Jeffrey Sharp said in a statement. “Yet our reach with virtual meetings, panels, and conversations has never been greater in terms of access and collaboration and we are excited to explore these opportunities with our growing community of storytellers.”
