Mission Statement

Craft Ed. Seminars is a year-round educational program that will explore the craft and business of storytelling through masterclasses, case studies, and industry panels, alongside networking opportunities.  The series of intensive full-day and half-day events grew out of the success of earlier one-off boot camps for filmmakers at the IFC Center, along with overwhelming demand from aspiring and established creative professionals to offer in-depth examinations of various aspects of the storytelling process, from inception to production to distribution and more. Programs will be devoted to a variety of topics in fiction filmmaking, documentary, television, podcasting, and other fields. Among the goals of Craft Ed. Seminars are:

  • To create a space for emerging and established content creators to learn from and connect with leaders in their field
  • To provide valuable educational content suitable for professionals at all stages of their careers, from first-timers to experienced creators
  • To explore both the craft and the business of the film, tv, streaming and podcasting scenes
  • To offer an informative, engaging curriculum that appeals to both professionals and enthusiasts
  • To provide an opportunity for socializing, discussing and networking among peers
