Innovative Storytelling by Muslims

Mar 8, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Coming out of the WGA strike will the industry include more diverse stories by emerging talent, including independent filmmakers? The panel will discuss how your story can stand out from the crowd in an industry that is highly competitive and saturated with non-original content. The panel will offer unique and relevant tips on writing and pitching more illuminating stories in an ever-changing market.
