      The Directors Ball

       The DIRECTORS BALL is a late autumn entertainment industry wide networking conference and film festival at the glamorous Hotel St Regis in Detroit, Michigan. The name DIRECTORS BALL refers to the formal Awards ceremony recognizing Excellence in the industry. Our intent is to provide an atmosphere where established professionals and newcomers can network, showcase their works, and a share information in the form of workshops that will benefit all participants.  These workshops will be run by experienced industry professionals.
      Detroit was chosen because the goals of The DIRECTORS BALLare reflected in the spirit that is rebuilding Detroit back to its glory days when business abounded in the downtown area, and the pride of the people in their city was reflected in its infrastructure.  We want to partner in a way that promotes this re-birth of a city known for the Auto Industry and the Music Industry when Detroit was synonymous with Motown by showcasing the city as a filmmaking destination during our event as well as promoting our event to consumers and filmmakers in the Detroit Metropolitan Area..  The tax incentive for independent filmmakers will be highlighted by exposing them to opportunities to shoot in Detroit and other locations in Michigan. 
      The DIRECTORS BALL is a technical resource for the rebuilding of urban and community partnerships in the arts; Broaden public awareness and encourage national participation in the development of new and progressive forms of the media and theatrical arts; Provide distribution and technical assistance workshops; Expand our affiliate network’s core with future leaders of the industry; Act as an information and referral resource on behind the camera up and coming talent; Advocate for the needs and of low-income film students to increase their opportunities in the professional job market; Provide assistance and advice in qualifying for and receiving their union card; and Provide an opportunity for the young students to participate as interns.
