We’re excited to announce the full schedule for Industry Days 2020, being held virtually for the first time!

This year’s Industry Keynote conversation will feature Academy Award®-winning producer and president of Plan B Entertainment Dede Gardner, whose credits include 12 Years a Slave and Moonlight, both presented at past editions of the Festival.

Additionally, Industry Days will host master classes with Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (Skyfall, Penny Dreadful, Hugo) and six-time Grammy-winner and Oscar-nominated trumpeter/ composer Terence Blanchard (BlacKkKlansman, Da 5 Bloods, One Night in Miami), along with a one-on-one conversation with trailblazing producer and CEO of Gamechanger Films Effie Brown (Dear White People).

The conference and all conversations will be livestreamed and feature an interactive component, and will run October 14-18, 2020. Film and industry professionals interested in attending should apply for credentials at http://chicagofilmfestival.com/industrydays.
