SeriesFest's Executive Elevation Mentorship aims to diversify the landscape of television's top decision makers.

As part of our mission, SeriesFest will curate a dedicated group of mentors and mentees to spark change in the landscape of the TV/film/media industry at the leadership level.

For the second cycle of the Executive Elevation Mentorship, SeriesFest has curated a group of mentors with a special focus on Creative Industry Leaders such as Showrunners, Directors, Writers and Executives. Mentees will be matched with these established leaders of color for a mentorship around the creative authority and responsibility for a television program's success.
