Our speaker list has typically been one of the most impressive aspects of our conference. Access to these generous industry professionals has been a highlight that most attendees find of great value. Featured speakers this year include NUMA PERRIER & DENNIS DORTCH, creators of the wildly successful independent web network Black&SexyTV as our opening keynote speakers. And popular independent film attorney and speaker MICHAEL C DONALDSON will be joining us as our closing keynote speaker. Actor CEDRIC PENDLETON of Tyler Perry's House of Payne, screenwriter K.L. Collins, and documentary filmmaker DEBORAH RILEY DRAPER are also slated to join us as session panelists.
