Bronk, a respected arts and entertainment industry leader, brings her expertise to this engaging dialogue to highlight insights into trailblazing approaches to financing films.

“Independent films are a powerful force that should never be underestimated,” said Bronk. “They serve as a catalyst for pushing boundaries, sharing distinctive narratives, and questioning established norms. In today’s landscape, film producers must take bold and innovative steps to secure financing, ensuring that diverse voices are heard, groundbreaking storytelling flourishes, and artistic expression remains unrestricted. Independent filmmakers are essential contributors to shaping our cultural fabric.”

“We’re thrilled to have Robin Bronk share her knowledge with our audience,” said Katie Patton Pryor, Co-Founder of Film USA. “Her commitment to arts advocacy and independent film aligns perfectly with our mission.”
