“This membership is the beginning of a company outreach program bridging independent musicians and independent filmmakers”, according to Phil Cartwright, CEO of HorizonVU Music. Phil has asked Lucie Reneau to lead the company’s efforts in planning and implementing a project that represents a “win-win” for artists wanting to pursue working in a multiarts environment. “Over the weeks and months ahead, Lucie will be reaching out to the independent film community in France and abroad to structure a program to build community,” said Phil.

IFP represents a network of 10,000 filmmakers in New York City and around the world. Through its workshops, seminars, conferences, mentorships, and Filmmaker magazine, IFP schools its members in the art, technology, and business of independent filmmaking (there are special programs to promote racial, ethnic, religious, ideological, gender, and sexual diversity). IFP builds audiences by hosting screenings, often in collaboration with other cultural institutions-and also bestows the Gotham Awards™, the first honors of the film awards season. When all is said and done, IFP fosters the development of 300 feature and documentary films each year.
