Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
Denver Comic Con and Literary Conference (DCC), a program of Comic Book Classroom (CBC) designed to help promote literacy through pop culture, today announced its expanded “Reel Heroes” programming. The programming will feature dozens of panels and demonstrations from cast and production teams from film and television industries.
“Denver Comic Con is committed to highlighting education programming, and since television and film is such a huge part of our pop culture it’s only natural that we’re offering so many hours about the theory and practice of those mediums,” said Bruce MacIntosh, DCC programming director and CBC chairman. “There are already film festivals where aspiring artists can screen their work—and you can do that at DCC, too. But we’re offering something more; here you can experience the diverse perspectives of some of the best TV and filmmakers in the country. Outside of film school, there’s not much else like it between the coasts.”
DCC’s Reel Heroes programming will feature professionals such as:
“We’re far more than a film festival, but we are accepting film submissions,” said MacIntosh. “DCC encourages local filmmakers to step up their game and show us—and all of the industry professionals at the con—their best work.” Film submissions are open online through May 1, 2014, and the filmmakers will be expected to participate in a Q&A about their production.
TV and film professionals with a diverse resume who wish to present or participate in programming about their craft are also encouraged to submit panel suggestions through the Denver Comic Con website Programming page.
