Expanding your audience through the power of diverse storytelling (panel + mixer)

Systemic racism continues to feed a lie - that racially diverse stories won’t sell internationally. We now know that is not true - the international market is hungry to see new stories told authentically. Reports show that the industry is sitting on this untapped market, which is worth billions. This panel, featuring some of the top writers and producers from underrepresented communities, is a lesson into the possibilities for creative disruption in the screen industry today to push back boundaries, and show how the power of their content can generate positive change—and dollars.

And don't miss the post-session mixer! Dive into the conversation as we close Week 2 with thoughtful, results-driven discussions about the new opportunities for members of Black, Indigenous, racialized and underrepresented communities to fill creative and executive roles, and how we can level the playing field for up-and-coming voices.

Audience members will be automatically redirected to the post session-mixer after the panel discussion concludes. A link to the mixer will also be added here once the panel begins.
