Bridging Diversity in the Film Industry Meet Up

Speakers

The Film and Television Industries have always been a dominant form of cultural and socio-economical influence in our society. Consistently, people from all walks of life are inspired by the stories and characters we watch. Ideological messages from our favorite shows influence our lives and even form parts of our identity. Since the invention of the film camera, there has been a pervasive heteronormative and patriarchal dominance within this medium. For those of us that are represented by a diverse minority culture, how can we remove these prevailing ideologies in the media and tell our own stories from our own perspective? And in the industry itself, how do we infiltrate the creative process? This panel seeks to discuss varying methods of implementing diversity within this industry.
