Any festivals that seem especially relevant? Conferences? Week long schools or workshops?

Since no one has chimed in here, I'm going to ask that if you find any good ones, please share. Personally, I've never had any luck outside the University system.
Will do. I have absolutely the same experience as you do. Outside of film festivals and ifp events there doesn't seem to be much. Film festivals are great - but they aren't catered to artistic development.

IFP Narrative Lab seems to be really cool if you have a feature in post. Currently I'm finishing up a short 35mm film so I don't qualify, but if you do, you should apply. It looks really cool:

I'm not endorsing any of these - still just compiling a list of non-academic or directly festival-related regular workshops around the USA. If anybody had an experience with these or more to add - please chime in!

Project:Involve is Film Independent’s signature diversity program, dedicated to increasing diversity in the film industry by cultivating the careers of under-represented filmmakers. The program, which runs from October through June, selects filmmakers from diverse backgrounds and filmmaking tracks. During the nine-months, the Fellows are paired one-on-one with a mentor from the film industry, assigned to a team to make a short film incorporating a given theme, and attend monthly filmmaking workshops and other educational seminars.
Hope this helps!
