Open Door Film Project’s Derrick Williams, Steve Deering, and Anna Levine on The Backpack Show

Episode Description

We've all seen how people of color, women, the disabled, the LGBTQ+ community and people starting out over age 40 are underrepresented in the film industry. On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with Derrick Williams, Steve Deering, and Anna Levine about the Open Door Film Project.

We'll talk about how the project is giving a “seat at the table” to 8 emerging directors from diverse backgrounds, producing 8 short films to create a feature film anthology. We can all learn a lot from the way this group is working with Hollywood power brokers and advocacy organizations throughout the film industry to bring about lasting change.
