BE YOU is a 1-day festival designed to spark honest conversation about the whole slate of media and entertainment culture.
 

From representation and inclusion, to empowering new content creators and tackling mid-level career ceilings, no subject is off the table.

A dynamic mix of over 350 industry heavyweights and fresh newcomers come together to passionately discuss the future of media culture.

Will you leave full of ideas and inspiration?

For sure. But most importantly, you’ll also walk away with tangible tactics, tools and connections.
