Lineup set for first-ever PGA confab

Producers include Clint Eastwood, Kathleen Kennedy

James Cameron, Clint Eastwood and Kathleen Kennedy are among the producers tapped for the Producers Guild of America's inaugural two-day conference June 5-7 at the Sony Pictures studio lot in Culver City.

The Produced By Conference will include presentations covering film, TV and new-media financing, content, production and marketing. Participants also will see hands-on demonstrations of cutting-edge technology, including stereoscopic 3-D and motion capture. Panel discussions and breakout sessions with top entertainment producerswill round out the conference.

Produced By is a first for the PGA, which holds smaller-scale seminars throughout the year.

"The PGA's Produced By Conference provides an unprecedented opportunity for producers to interact with industry leaders who will share their insights into innovative approaches to financing, content and technology," said Gale Anne Hurd and Rachel Klein, the event's co-chairs. "Our goal is to present the most compelling programming and enable the producing community to learn from the greatest minds in entertainment."

The PGA's annual general membership meeting will take place during the conference.
