(Special Screening + Panel)

Make a Lasting Mark in the Entertainment Industry 

Presented by:  

Two films and a panel that are sure to inspire –  join us as we watch and hear from those that have lived, survived and dare we even say, thrived in the ever-changing industry of entertainment — from launching a second career, staying ahead of new distribution platforms and/or have adapted to new content formats that are emerging seemingly every day.  How do you stay sane when gatekeepers still control who has access to get their stories told — how does one gain a foothold in their chosen field? And what’s more, how do we maintain career growth and stay ahead in an industry that’s constantly looking for the hottest, newest thing? What responsibility do we have as content creators to make the invisible more visible? And how do we influence the content creators to support LGBTQ older adults?

The panelists in this discussion have managed to leverage their talent into a fruitful, multi-discipline brand and continue to produce meaningful work across many platforms. Join them to talk about how to succeed beyond your first project, and what you need to do once your foot is in the door in order to grow your success into a lasting career.
