11th Annual HollyShorts Film Festival Panel Conference

Panel and Party Sponsored by Final Draft in conjunction with

Breaking Down Doors

Many talented actors, writers, producers and directors give up on their dreams too soon, not because they're not talented, but because they're unable to get a foot in the door. We say, If a door doesn't open when you knock, it's time to take your career into your own hands and build a door of your own to walk through!

Come meet with top Industry Executives including Walter O’Brien - Executive Producer of the Hit CBS TVshow Scorpion, Robert Munic - Writer/Co-Executive Producer of FOX's industry changing show Empire, Marcia Ross - a Multi-Award Winning Blockbuster Casting Director,  Studio Executive, and Producer,  and Nicole Greenwood - one of the heads of,  a new online discovery platform making HUGE waves.   Guided by the brilliant Actor/Producer Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation, Impress Me...) they'll discuss new ways of finding and creating opportunities in the entertainment industry. Everyone on the panel is not only exceptional at what they do, they truly love helping and taking artists to the next level. Their invaluable advice applies to actors, writers, producers, directors, filmmakers and musicians alike.   Come and hear Executive Producers, Award Winning Writers, Casting Directors, Studio Execs, and all talk about how!
