Calling all independent film producers in New York... Here's some information about a cool seminar for folks interested in learning some tips and strategies for producing, led by Karin Chien, veteran producer behind independent films like Robot Stories, The Motel and Undoing. Here are the details:

Ideal for novices, experienced producers, and anyone who's ever asked:

a) How do I choose the right projects?
