by Zach Mandinach on June 22, 2022

Brooklyn, NY (June 21, 2022) – The Gotham Film & Media Institute announced today the dates and location for the 2022 Gotham Week. This year’s Gotham Week, The Gotham’s flagship program that began in 1979, will take place September 17th – September 23rd in person at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and includes virtual programming and events. Gotham Week is comprised of the Project Market, the Conference, and this year, will include the inaugural Expo. 

The Gotham Week Project Market, the nation’s oldest and largest curated marketplace for film, TV, and audio storytellers, nurtures both emerging and established talent by opening the doors for groundbreaking new work and career-spanning relationships between distributors, financiers, production companies, festival programmers, sales and talent agents, and collaborators for all participating artists. The Project Market meetings will be held in person Monday, September 19th – Wednesday, September 21st, while Project Market virtual meetings will take place on Thursday, September 22nd, and Friday, September 23rd.

The Gotham Week Conference explores the art and business of film and media today. Seasoned mentors and industry leaders make the Conference the premier forum for creators to break through and take their careers to the next level. This year’s Conference will focus on workshop-style programming to ensure creators access the tools they need to connect with audiences, expand their story’s reach, and build sustainable careers. In addition to workshops, there will also be panels, screenings, and networking opportunities. Tickets to the Conference will go on sale in mid-July.

This year, Gotham Week will expand to include the inaugural Gotham Week Expo, which brings together partners from The Gotham’s Expanding Communities, Owning It, and Gotham EDU programs for the first time. The Expo will showcase thought leadership on the advancement of the film and media industries while amplifying partner organizations and communities. Attendance at the Expo will be free and open to The Gotham’s community and partner organizations’ communities. 

“For over 40 years, Gotham Week has provided new opportunities for emerging filmmakers, TV and audio creators to find their people, meet with industry leaders, and connect with a wide range of organizations in the entertainment ecosystem, while also providing an opportunity to come together to celebrate this resilient and powerful creative community,” said The Gotham’s Executive Director Jeff Sharp. 

“After two years apart, we are looking forward to reuniting in person this year at our new location at the Brooklyn Navy Yard,” said Kia Brooks, Deputy Director at The Gotham Film & Media Institute.
