IFP Filmmaker Lab
“I've seen it time and time again Jon helps filmmakers find what it takes to make a good film great and to ensure that industry and audiences alike take notice. When it comes to completing, marketing and distributing a film, nobody does it better than Jon Reiss. From his first-hand experience as a filmmaker and producer to his dynamic, innovative teaching style, Jon has a true grasp on the marketplace and can help you understand your place in it. A lot of people preach about the importance ‘finding your audience’ but Jon takes it a step further and gives you direct access to the roadmaps and compasses we all need stay focused, stay on point and look good doing it.”
Amy Dotson, Deputy Director IFP
