Event Details:

Co-hosted by Kathleen Tarr, JD (Stanford University) and Myrton Running Wolf, PhD (University of Nevada, Reno), this year's Getting Played Symposium will feature a keynote by Tatiana Lee (RespectAbility) and engage distinguished panelists Michelle Kantor (Cinefemme), Nikko Kimzin (Kimzin Creative), Margaret Lake (MarWin Films), and Rebecca Murga (American Film Institute), followed by audience Q&A. This year's theme focuses on anti-intellectualism within dominant entertainment industry practices from character development to efforts among even those considered to be social justice allies that disregard data and law. The imperative is clear: not only are Industry workers subjected to rampant employment discrimination, entertainment media shapes who we are. We must do better.
