I am the director of the Long Beach Indie International Film, Media and Music Festival. This is one of the top reviewed film festivals in the world according to FilmFreeway.com. A celebration of global diversity, since its inception in 2014 LBI has drawn more than 8000 attendees, screened more than 450 films from 50+ countries, attracted Oscar, Emmy, Golden Globe, ALMA, DGA and NAACP Image Award winners and nominees as presenters and even had its winner for Best Animated Short nominated for an Academy Award.
The 5-day destination event is a perfect opportunity for brands seeking to connect with multicultural entertainment industry entrepreneurs and high income media influencers.
It includes an international film festival, a film, media, and music conference, and a college and career fair. In 2017 we are also adding both film market and an "Entertainment Business Forum" linking creative entrepreneurs with the business services (banking and finance, accounting, legal, marketing and public relations, payroll, benefits, etc.) that they need to be successful long term.
To this end we need to a current contact list of companies and brands that would benefit from access to our ever growing database and community of entertainment industry entrepreneurs.
Can you help?
I am sometimes still caught in the 20th century so I need someone to suggest and educate me on both traditional (e.g. e-mail and telephone) and new age means of both creating, managing, and leveraging contact leads.
The chosen consultant will have a good track record of getting their clients in the door and also how to be creative in thinking about the strategy.
