Nominated for a 2012 European Diversity Award, the Diversity Symposium is the main event in the Beyond Borders: Diversity in Cannes Filmmaker Series. The panel discussion takes place annually during the Festival de Cannes and serves as a strategy session for diverse minds seeking to enhance the visibility of their projects and to increase filmmaking opportunities beyond international and traditional borders. It overflows with power networking, group discussions and idea sharing.
The symposium encourages dialogue amongst emerging filmmakers willing to think outside the box and beyond borders for opportunities to develop, finance and distribute their films. More importantly, it provides a platform for globally diverse filmmakers to shine the light on their own accomplishments and to ensure the continued presence of the under represented story at the Festival de Cannes and the international film festival circuit.
