Latest updates

Diverse stories, diverse voices! 🌟 The latest stats remind us that change is overdue. In 2022, white writers still held 87.6% of the top film credits. We believe in a Hollywood where all stories are heard, where diverse perspectives thrive, and where writers from every background shine. It's time to reshape the narrative. 🎥✨
Our popular end of year event is back in person! 🎉 We are so excited to bring back our pre-pandemic tradition of celebrating the holidays with you all.
