Crafting entertainment based on true crime can be a tricky path to navigate. How do creators tell interesting, compelling stories that stay true to real events, while respecting the victims and the human stories that are at the heart of the horror? Panelists will discuss their adaptations of true crime events to film and television, and how research plays a key role in sharing these stories responsibly.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge for entry.
