Event Details

The future of filmmaking is in the Bay Area! In 2023, the film industry is finally recognizing that diversity in representation has a huge impact in the stories we tell and the audiences we connect with. From Black Panther to Shang-Chi, the Bay Area has contributed incredible talent and storytelling to the film industry. At the same time, content creation through social media influencer culture has democratized communication and storytelling, giving everyone a platform to speak to the world (for better or for worse). When the film industry reflects the diversity of our communities both on-screen and behind the camera, we get to be seen in our complexity and humanity, and pass down our sacred stories, something that audiences have been demanding for far too long.

Join us for a keynote from Pixar creative Theo Hollingsworth, followed by a short film screening and mixer as we bring together the Bay Area’s brightest minds in the filmmaking and content creation industry. “Find Your Crew” is an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and build meaningful relationships that can take your career to the next level. We will feature short films from REEL, an immersive film program that allows students to produce short films together as a crew. We invite local filmmakers at all levels of the industry to connect with us, from seasoned professionals to those just starting out. Through this event, we hope to empower and amplify our voices, shaping tomorrow’s leaders one camera at a time.
