VAFF Industry Insight (VAFF I²) Panel Series

VAFF Industry Insight (VAFF I²) Panel Series

Launched three years ago as a locus for industry advocacy and action with a distinct diversity focus, the VAFF Industry (VAFF I2) Panel Series continues to challenge the entertainment and media industry to examine their work and practices in creating a more diverse and inclusive Canada.

For each of the two panel sessions, speakers will share personal stories, journeys, and experiences in their fields, then gather at the end of the session to participate in a roundtable discussion allowing for the audience the opportunity to join in on the conversations.

The VAFF Industry Insight  (VAFF I²) Panel Series is open to VAFF Industry, Filmmaker and VIP Passholders, as well as festival ticket holders with membership.
