The Grace & Grit Speaker Series is a two-day virtual event that brings together inspiring talks from diverse women working in film and television. The speakers are a mix of industry veterans with over 20 years of experience, and young up-and-comers who have made incredible strides in the span of a few years. Based in Los Angeles, New York City and Atlanta, each speaker covers a different craft in the business, including directing, cinematography, production design, casting and acting.
These women share wisdom learned from career struggles and speak truth to being underrepresented in entertainment. Amid COVID-19 and renewed calls for systemic change across all facets of American society, the arrival of Grace & Grit is timely, to say the least. As Hollywood’s future hangs in the balance, this series intends to empower and encourage women struggling to make it in Tinseltown, and those desiring to break in.
The Grace & Grit Speaker Series occurs on Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26. The event weekend is free to register, with an optional VIP upgrade.
