EP Financial Solutions’ Joe Chianese has been moderating some jam-packed events lately, and today’s American Film Market (AFM) conference was no exception. Held at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica, the 800-seat ballroom was standing room only. In fact, the number of attendees broke the current AFM record!

Mike Rose provided introductory remarks that highlighted several of EP’s recent achievements. Joe was then joined by panelists who discussed the future of independent film financing, emerging trends, and the impact of new platforms on global film finance. Panelists were five Hollywood “elites” who hailed from powerhouses including The Weinstein Company, CAA, and IM Global.

Job well done, Joe and AFM!
