Diversity Counts: Auteurs, Actors and Audiences
    In this panel we'll explore ways for storytellers to use diversity as a tool to enrich themselves, their projects and the audience in a positive way. We'll discuss programs in the industry that assist filmmakers of diverse backgrounds, the importance and benefits of having a diverse cast and crew, festivals that encourage diverse stories and ways of marketing your project to the audiences who will embrace them the most. While there will be a direction to the conversation, audience participation is highly encouraged. So bring your questions and join panelists from Screen Actors Guild, Alliance of Women Directors, Troublemaker Studios (Spy Kids, Sin City, and Grindhouse) and the Producers Guild of America Diversity Committee for a lively and informative dialogue.
