For us diversity and inclusion are the key to meaningful discussions. In this session we will bring amazing producers representing a balance across gender, geography and experience in the film and TV industry. We will host a powerful conversation with Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning Hollywood producer, Janet Yang (Steven Spielberg’ Empire of the Sun, Milos Forman’ The People vs. Larry Flynt, Dark Matter with Meryl Streep; The Weight of Water directed by Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow; The Joy Luck Club; Fox’s High Crimes with Morgan Freeman; and most recently, the Academy Award-nominated animated feature Over the Moon for Netflix).
