About the event

Moderator: Tara L. Taylor  (Creative Producer I Writer I Actor I Chair; Union of Black Artists Society)

Being Black in the film industry has its own unique set of issues. Acting on set, often the

lighting is unflattering to those with darker skin tones. The quantity of Black creatives in the union is a staggering low numbers.

Crew is usually scarce when the above the line positions are filled by non-POC folk. We are given  less room for failure in any regard. From the writers room, to the creators, to the sound crew, representing Black creatives in film is sorely lacking.

With Guest Panelists:

Christopher Bautista - Producer I Actor I Director

Jayde Tynes - Producer I Story Editor "Big Brother Canada"
