Reel Diversity: The Audacity of Authenticity Industry Event and NYC Premiere of The View From Tall
As film and television help define the vision we have of the world, it is crucial for all types to be represented and for authentic portrayals to be the visions we support. Filmmakers and actors with disabilities continue to have limited access to opportunities in film and television. How can we foster more inclusion? What are positive examples of inclusion? What can each person do on an individual level to create change? Join us as we talk with the best in the industry who are leading the way to full inclusion and authentic representation of disability. They will not only be talking about how they do what they do, but also how we all can have a real and lasting inclusive impact.
When: 7 – 10 p.m., Tuesday, March 7
Event will include a cocktail reception, panel discussion and the New York premiere of The View from Tall.
