GSCA’s 10 Reasons to Attend the Film Expo

10. California sunshine
Snow, sleet, rain, gray skies…it’s been a tough winter, and it’s not a crime to get a healthy dose of vitamin D while you’re working.

9. Event rate hotel discount
A luxury hotel room in Los Angeles for $124? That’s a great rate. We know budgets are tight, so we work hard to negotiate the best deals possible for our delegates. And you deserve fluffy pillows when you’re away from home.
8. Airfare and Rental Car Discounts
We’ve negotiated discounts at Avis Rent-a-Car and American Airlines for GSCA Film Expo attendees. Like we said, we know budgets are tight, and every little bit helps.
7. Committee Meetings
Okay, “committee meetings” doesn’t sound exciting, but they are very important. GSCA committees help determine the direction of the association. Participate on a committee and take part in shaping our future. Plus, breakfast is provided.
6. Dome Day
Films look different on the dome screen than they do on the flat screen. It’s a fact of giant screen life. Come to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center on March 10 to see how new films and films in production will look on your dome.
5. First-timer discount
GSCA is offering a $225 registration discount to member first-time attendees. Even if you’re not a first-timer, bring a colleague who is. The Film Expo is a great opportunity to introduce someone to the industry and GSCA.
4. Technical session
You asked for a technical session at the Film Expo, and we heard you. We’re taking advantage of (in a good way) the technical resources in Los Angeles so you can learn more about 3D cameras, laser technology, integrated media systems, and digital theater considerations. Descriptions of the presentations can be found here.
3. Films in Production
Wondering what to book at your theater in the next few years? Come take a look at what’s in the pipeline. Where else will you find air racers, animal babies, dragons, mountain climbers, flying monsters, sharks, lightning flashes, pirates, time travel, polar bears, coral reefs, outer space, butterflies, whales, dinosaurs, oceans, disaster responders, and the crossroads of civilization all in one place? You’ll find descriptions of the 15/70 clips here and the digital clips here.
2. New Films
Admit it…you still get excited when the lights go down in the theater. Come see the industry’s newest films for a reminder of why we love and work in this industry. See Legends of Flight, The Little Prince, Magic Journey to Africa, My Dream 3D, Sea Rex: Journey to a Prehistoric World, To the Arctic (rough cut), Waking the T. Rex: The Story of Sue, and Tornado Alley. Find out more about the films here.
1. Networking
Networking is the best way to get business done. And it’s so much more effective when it’s done in person.
