Black Filmmakers: Creating Global Content

Whether for the big or little screen, creating tech-savvy, thought-provoking global content and distributing those end-products are top priorities for Black filmmakers, writers and digital content creators. In this panel, we will look at current trends, discuss where we fit in, how to change the global narrative of our community, and how to successfully reach a global market through smart marketing and distribution. A panel of Black experienced, content-creators will discuss strategies and available resources to create entertaining, conscious, and profitable content for worldwide production and distribution.
