We're inviting Actress Bresha Webb, Director of Programming Mercedes Cooper, Development Executive Ada Chiaghana, and PR Maven Chardae Jenkins to discuss their process to success and the BTS efforts leading to the creation of our community's favorite films.

WHO TELLS OUR STORIES? LGBTQ STORYTELLERS RECLAIM THE FRAME

Saturday, January 22, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. MT GLAAD

Too often the stories of people from underrepresented communities have been told by creators from outside of that community. But as more LGBTQ storytellers are empowered to create narratives on their own terms and tell complex, nuanced stories from an unapologetically queer point of view, their fresh perspectives are changing the cultural conversation both on-screen and beyond. Join GLAAD and LGBTQ creators for a discussion on their process, observations on the industry, and how audiences are demanding authentic storytelling.

Together they will share prototypes, provocations, and artifacts from an imagined future media-arts ecosystem centered in justice, abundance, and joy.

Featuring: Sabrina Schmidt Gordon (Producer, To The End), Andria Wilson Mirza (Director, ReFrame), Yasmin Dunn (Director of Education & Outreach, Hollywood Commission)

Facilitated by: Karim Ahmad (Director, Outreach & Inclusion, Sundance Institute), Brenda Coughlin (Director, Engagement & Advocacy, Sundance Institute), Tony Patrick (Sundance New Frontier alum)

UNCONSCIOUS BIAS: BIPOC DEAF CREATORS REFRAMING THE NARRATIVE AT THE SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT TABLE & BEHIND THE CAMERA.

Saturday, January 22, 4:30-6 p.m. MT

Deaf Talent Media & Entertainment Consulting (DTMEC)

For years, Hollywood has tended toward the unconscious bias of stereotyping BIPOC Deaf creators by assuming we do not exist - which has negatively influenced how writers tell stories about us. Our goal is to address why there are no BIPOC Deaf creators and writers developing stories in the writers' room. What will it take for Hollywood to hire BIPOC Deaf creators? What concrete actions can Hollywood take to bring culturally authentic BIPOC Deaf representation to the screen and behind the camera in 2022 and beyond?
