This is your chance to sit down for a meeting with two of the biggest managers/producers in Hollywood, Chris Bender and Jake Weiner.

Bender has produced or developed projects that have grown into six franchises in various genres: Final Destination, American Pie, The Ring, Cats & Dogs, The Butterfly Effect, and The Hangover. Eight of his movies have opened to number one, and Bender was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the David Cronenberg directed A History of Violence.

He served as a Co-Producer on the critically acclaimed and Golden Globe nominated A History of Violence, and on New Line’s Just Friends.
