You don’t need to move to LA to work in the film industry. There is a large community of media professionals right here in Minnesota – and they need good lawyers. Walt Lehmann of Lehmann PLC (formerly Lehmann Strobel PLC) has practiced art and entertainment law for over 20 years. Join the Art and Entertainment Section for a lively discussion with Walt about the ins and outs of representing independent film producers and other media professionals.

The presentation will be followed by a tour of the Independent Filmmakers Project campus and a networking reception at Lake Monster Brewery.
