Gatekeepers and Gatecrashers
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Film Fatales for a discussion with episodic television creators, showrunners and producing directors including Elle Johnson (Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam CJ Walker), Janine Sherman Barrois (Claws, Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam CJ Walker,), Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland), and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro (UnREAL). Moderated by Film Fatales member Shaz Bennett (Director, Queen Sugar, Billions).
This will be a panel and open conversation to discuss the push for hiring equality NOW. How do you manage your gate? What are the barriers to systemic change? How do directors get that first episode? And how do they get invited back? How do you find directors that can authentically tell your stories?
This event is open to the public. A zoom link will be sent in advance and a video replay link will be shared after.
See you soon!
