VISIONARY SPOTLIGHT:

A CHAMPION FOR INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS


Eric Vollweiler Brings Diversity and Unity to Film Festivals and Entertainment Events

Eric Vollweiler is a champion for independent filmmakers. He has produced and promoted many independent film festivals and events over the years, Independent Filmmaker Day in particular. With over 830,000 members, Independent Filmmaker Day is a community that helps independent creators from around the world develop new projects, connect within the industry, and champion collaborative and impactful storytelling at all stages.

It is a community of directors, producers, actors, and film buffs. The event hosts day-long events held alongside premier film festivals~ such as Cannes, Sundance, and TIFF~ that foster the development, production, and promotion of projects in film, media, and beyond.

Rubenstein Business Law and Artists United presented Independent Filmmaker Day during the Sundance Film Festival in 2020, which was produced by Eric Vollweiler.

Notable attendees included Kym Jackson (American Crime Story, NCIS, This Is Us) and Angela Northington, who most recently served as senior vice president, content acquisitions and programming, for Urban Movie Channel.

Eric is no stranger to producing events during Sundance. He has produced the Indieslate Magazines Sundance Film Festival Event, which took place at the Spotted Frog Book Store back in 2006. Eric was also the producer for the 8th Annual Latino Filmmaker Network events during the 2022 Sundance Film Festival.
