Film Con Hollywood 2018
Film Con Hollywood 2018 arrives at the LA Convention Center March 24, 2018. An inaugural edition is an all-day event packed with direct actionable knowledge and guidance for media and film novices, with Chevy Chase and Jillian Bell set to receive honors at an evening red-carpet party event.
The day’s scheduled highlights include a Keynote Address by Allen Maldonado (The Last O.G., Blackish) sharing his story with a demographic he can identify with: young actors, writers, and directors in Los Angeles hungry for success, but in need of necessary guidance and support systems.
One of the day’s featured events is The Inclusion/Women Panel, being produced as “Girls Rule Film Con Hollywood 2018, starring Lisa Bloom, Mandy Teefey, Jennifer Warren, Ramaa Mosely, and Triana Lavey”, represents a snapshot in time of Hollywood women who have succeeded in the arts, business, and media the past 40 years in spite of obstacles that are only now being exposed, a production created in honor of #timesup. $1,000 will be given to the Alliance of Women’s Directors, and $1,000 to East LA Women’s Center. Social media star Nazanin Kavari (1.5+ million followers), Lavey’s client, will be a host of sorts, demonstrating the power of social media, promising to deliver 200 fans to the LA Convention Center via a single tweet.
About Film Con Hollywood:
Film Con Hollywood is committed to the goal of offering knowledge and opportunity for all, as well as support and inclusion for young actors, writers, and filmmakers, a bracket of artists too often left isolated and without real guidance or opportunity.
The event takes place in the Los Angeles Convention Center, which is located near Dixie Hollywood Hotel, so if you need a place to stay at for the weekend were the place for you!
