Join us June 25th – 27th for our inaugural Minority Independent Producers Summit (MIPS) where you’ll have a chance to network with industry professionals and experts in the areas of financing, production, and distribution.

Featured speakers and panelists have worked with organizations including the Tribeca Film Institute, Producers Guild of America, Writers Guild of America, Independent Filmmaker Project, SAG-AFTRA, and New York Women in Film and Television.

Our mission is to increase the diversity of minority independent producers and content creators in the worlds of film, television and digital online industries today.

We aim to be an advocate for increased participation by independent producers from underrepresented communities such as those of color, LGBT, women and those with disabilities.

This year’s panelists include:

Lisa Cortes: Executive Producer – Precious (2009), In the Summer Pavilion (2014)

Rachel Watanabe-Batton: Vice Chair – Producers Guild of America, East

Terence Nance: Writer/Director – An Oversimplification of Her Beauty (2013)
