If you've been keeping an ear on the trades, then you've heard about the efforts to diversify Hollywood for a while now. As a result, we've seen a wave of diverse creators take center stage and films like CRAZY RICH ASIANS, BLACK PANTHER, PARASITE, and THE FAREWELL that have proven there is a desire for more diverse stories, perspectives, and characters on both the big and small screens. The continued push to show diversity both in front of and behind the camera is an ongoing endeavor. But is it enough?
In honor of Black History Month, Roadmap has put together a special webinar event with three brilliant panelists to discuss the state of the industry, diverse voices, and representation!
This 90-Minute Panel Will Cover:
- Diversity in front and behind of the camera
- Writing diverse characters
- Audience Q&A
