Films to Books

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While books have been adapted to film for years, little has been offered about how to go the other way – making films into books. Nationally recognized book publisher Frank Gromling takes filmmakers through the sometimes harrowing process of converting their films to best selling books. Gromling identifies the primary publishing methods and reveals how to navigate around the major pitfalls. This interactive workshop provides a step-by-step way to prepare a query, submit a proposal, analyze publishing houses, and negotiate contracts.

As a result of this program, everyone will understand why converting films to books makes sense and how to accomplish it successfully.
