    Join WIFVNE Board member Alyson Muzila and Kristie Raymond of HumanKind Casting as we co-host an empowering discussion on how embracing diversity and inclusion can change the face of the film, TV & commercial industry. Admission is $5 for WIFVNE members and $10 non-members. 

    The inaugural event, Creating with Intention: Embracing Inclusivity in Film, Video & Commercial Media will feature panelists

    • Steven Kaldeck, Actor, Editor & VFX at RAVision Productions
    • Erik Kondo, Actor, Activist, Engineer
    • Courtney Morse, Hair & Makeup Artist and parent of adaptive talent

    This event will delve into best practices, challenges, and opportunities in fostering inclusivity, featuring insights from industry experts, leaders in the independent film community, and advocates of marginalized groups such as the disability community.

      The importance of inclusivity in the film and video production industry has begun to garner more attention. From casting decisions and industry hiring to production choices and the optics of storytelling, a commitment to diversity and inclusion is essential to our work and enriches our relationships that support our industry. Much work remains, however, to ensure equitable representation on camera and off.

      Focusing on fostering diversity and equity, the panel discussion promises to unveil actionable strategies for creating more inclusive content and workplaces, setting new standards in film, video and commercial production.

      It is time to truly "Widen the Lens" and create spaces that celebrate diversity, where innovation and creativity can thrive.

      For Lisa Cortés sustainability in her career means producing and directing her own work but continuing to produce other filmmakers - and why not? She is so, so good at it!

      Grammy-nominated and Emmy-winning director and producer Lisa Cortés generates bold, explosive art that shines light on important stories hidden from view. From executive-producing the Academy Award®-winning film, Precious, to producing and directing 2023’s “enthralling documentary” (Variety Magazine) Little Richard: I Am Everything, Lisa sparks cultural change through works of unrivaled excellence. Her productions have earned over 100 international awards, a testament to her unwavering commitment to excellence in both documentary and narrative.

      Lisa's film, Little Richard: I Am Everything (CNN Films) was co-produced by CNN Films and HBO Max and executive produced by Rolling Stone Films and Dee Rees and released theatrically by Magnolia Pictures. Little Richard premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, has earned 5 awards & 27 additional nominations, including a Grammy nod for Best Music Film. She produced Invisible Beauty (2023), about Black fashion industry pioneer Bethann Hardison, directed by Hardison and Frédéric Tcheng, which premiered that same year at Sundance, winning multiple awards and is streaming on Hulu. Other director/producer titles include the multi-award-winning, The Space Race (2023) and All In: The Fight for Democracy (2020) with Liz Garbus, an Amazon Studios Original Documentary.

      Join WMM in this one-of-a-kind conversation to glean Lisa’s insights to a sustainable and fulfilling career.
