How to Make a Living as a Filmmaker

The Tribeca Film Institute at The New School hosted a panel discussion last February on How to Make a Living as a Filmmaker or How to Make a Living and Still Be a Filmmaker.
You've completed your school work and made a few films in school, and now you need to figure out your next steps. What career options exist for filmmakers? How can you develop and raise money for a film project and still cover your living expenses? This panel addresses these questions and provides examples and answers relevant to all makers of film and other media.
