Pathways To The Industry For Trans and Nonbinary Filmmakers

7-23-23 | 10:00 am 1:00 pm PDT

FLUX + Women In Media’s ProudlyWiM Initiative joined forces for a panel and brunch, designed to enlighten and encourage our Trans and Nonbinary friends about working in the entertainment industry. Trans & Nonbinary crew discussed their pathways towards professional, sustainable physical production careers.

There are many creative and technical jobs for those who love the art and craft of storytelling. There is no one trajectory to success behind the scenes in film, television and related media. This was a fantastic chance to hear from people with varying degrees of experience, ask questions, and network.
