Grab your Festival Pass to experience SeriesFest: Season 7

June 21, 2021

At SeriesFest, we recognize that we need to actively play a role in supporting and amplifying the voices of underrepresented storytellers.

During Season 7, we are celebrating cutting-edge creators changing the face of episodic storytelling and making a positive impact.

SeriesFest is proud to present an exciting virtual talk with the President and Head of ColorCreative, Talitha Watkins, moderated by Universal Pictures' Chief Marketing Officer, Michael Moses. 

Not only has Talitha carved out a hugely successful career for herself in the television and film industry, but she has impacted the careers of many other underrepresented voices and changed the industry for the better. In this not-to-be missed event, learn about the importance of broadening the scope of storytelling to reflect an inclusive and authentic representation of the world.
