About PANO

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the careers of underrepresented filmmakers, including women, trans, and gender-expansive creators, experiencing marginalization due to their identities.

We are known for being a safe and supportive for our 3,000+ global members and 12,000+ engaged social media subscribers. We empower and support underrepresented filmmakers through monetary support (grants, discounts), peer-to-peer mentorships, cutting-edge job training (labs, workshops), access to vital resources (job listings, crew and casting calls) and networking opportunities (industry events, screenings, showcases).

We recognize the vital role filmmaking plays in shaping our culture and work to support underrepresented storytellers to overcome the many barriers they may face throughout their careers. Our impactful, community first programs result in a more equitable entertainment industry that reflects the panorama of diverse voices we want to see in front of and behind our screens.

About Our Programs

We’ve surveyed our community to figure out what underrepresented filmmakers need the most: access to capital, resources, jobs and opportunities, and influential networks. As a result, our programs are designed to deliver the most impact for our marginalized members while making it easy for you and your company to support gender equity and diversity in media.

Diamond Partnership

We will create a custom lab or program named after your company or organization. You can choose the subject matter, skills developed, and the speakers featured. The exclusive program will be offered to a carefully selected group of PANO members matching your criteria. All the program’s marketing materials will prominently showcase your company, products, guest speakers and expertise. This is a great opportunity to reach our entire audience over a span of six months to a year while demonstrating your commitment to gender equity. Furthermore, we’ll program and host two live events to celebrate the launch and closing of your program, of which your entire team will be invited to.
