How to Attend
The Seminar is a gathering for Black, Brown, and Indigenous artists working in cinematic realms.
Registration is required. After filling out the registration form you will be prompted to purchase a pass to complete registration.
This year we have three levels of passes available, each of which is described below. Here’s a resource to help explain the cost to attend to your employer.
This tier is intended for those who regularly experience stress around meeting their basic needs.
If you register at this level, you may live paycheck to paycheck, experience instability in housing or healthcare, have irregular access to nourishing food, and/or have little-to-no expendable income.
If paying for the seminar represents a financial hardship—meaning it would be detrimental to meeting your basic needs—this tier is for you.
This tier is intended for those who may stress about meeting their basic needs but still typically achieve them and have some expendable income left over.
If you register at this level, you likely have stable employment and regular access to safe and secure housing, nourishing food, and quality healthcare. You may also have access to financial support from family, friends, or partners.
If paying for the seminar may require a sacrifice but would not impact your ability to meet your basic needs, this tier is for you.
This tier is intended for individuals with class privilege or those whose institutions are covering the cost of their registration.
If you don’t have institutional support but are registering at this level, you are able to comfortably meet all of your basic needs and still have expendable income and access to savings.
Paying at this level subsidizes the registration of others with less access to resources.
