Gather together online with your NYWIFT colleagues at our January 2023 virtual speed networking mixer. We will be joined by our friends from BIPOC Doc Editors!
Come ready to share creative ideas, suggestions, and contact info for further engagement.
We will begin the evening with a ten-minute salon conversation to discuss BDE’s latest opportunities and initiatives, followed by about 90 minutes of speed networking, during which you will be randomly paired off with other attendees to network one-on-one.
This is a great opportunity for NYWIFT producers looking to hire their next editor – and for editors to get hired!
NYWIFT will also offer a discount on membership to any new members who attend that evening.
NYWIFT hangouts are a safe space to ask entertainment related questions, seek advice, employment and other industry opportunities. Prep your elevator pitch and get ready to make connections! As always, all members are welcome and encouraged to attend and mix, mingle and get to know our dynamic and talented members and staff in an informal setting.
Tuesday, January 10, 2023
6 – 7:30 PM ET
Free to attend.
Please RSVP no later than Tuesday, January 10 at 3 PM ET in order to attend.
About BIPOC Doc Editors
BIPOC Doc Editors is a public, searchable online database of editors complimented by a series of initiatives for change. The current lack of inclusion and access in documentary production is a systemic problem. The documentary community is currently mostly white, and this has led to an overwhelming system of white creatives mentoring and promoting other white creatives already in their circles.
To help address these issues, BIPOC Doc Editors created a user-friendly database that includes everyone from veteran editors to rising assistant editors and new editors looking to break into the industry. Producers are able to use the database to find a larger circle of talent beyond their usual hires. We also are dedicated to holding in-person and virtual networking events for our member and we promote mentorship in the workplace to uplift the next generation of talent.
