Making a Lasting Mark in the Entertainment Industry
On Saturday, March 7, Outfest Fusion Sponsor AARP will headline the MAKING A LASTING MARK IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY special event opening festival remarks, film screening and panel starting at 11:30 am at Regal L.A. Live. The event will begin with a special screening of ACUITZERAMO (Miguel Angel Caballero) followed by the Outfest Original OutSet short PROTECTED (Sal Rubio). Moderated by Brickson Diamond (Blackhouse), the panel will feature D.J. “Shangela” Pierce (HBO’s We’re Here, A Star is Born), Ser Anzoategui (Starz’ Vida, East Los High), Moises Zamora (American Crime, Netflix’s Selena: The Series), Miguel Angel Caballero (Acuitzeramo), Carol Ann Shine (Noah's Arc), and Allison Liddi-Brown (Marvel's Runaways, L Word Generation Q).  

This high impact session will highlight how queer talent gain foothold in the entertainment industry and maintain career growth amongst industry gatekeepers and the responsibility content creators have to uplift invisible and older voices in the queer community and bring them forward in the industry. Participants will also learn how to succeed beyond your first project and what you need to do once your foot is in the door in order to grow your success into a lasting career. 

“AARP is thrilled to join forces with Outfest to socialize research insights about LGBTQ older adults and empower LGBTQ content creators of color to tell stories inclusive of all of us under the rainbow,” said Dr. Nii-Quartelai Quartey, AARP Senior Advisor & National LGBT Liaison. 

AARP Members and attendees over the age of 50 receive complimentary entry to this event; claim your free ticket to ensure your seat. Please be prepared to show your AARP membership card or photo ID.
