The Hollywood Creative Forum is a top-line, invitation-only, professional development intensive aimed at qualified creatives and is designed to enhance, expand and empower the careers of content creatives of color with verified mid- to high-level credits in television, digital/streaming and film, as writers, directors and/or producers, including showrunners.
Each and every one of us has experienced the fallout of the rapidly changing circumstances related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Given the changes we have experienced at the Walter Kaitz Foundation in the past month alone, combined with feedback we have received from our partners, sponsors, participants and key stakeholders, we’ve made the decision to cancel the digital version of the Hollywood Creative Forum in addition to the in-person event which was originally slated to take place on April 28-29, 2020, in Los Angeles.
We believe the face-to-face educational and networking component of the Hollywood Creative Forum is pivotal in accomplishing our primary goal of connecting accomplished creators of color to content buyers across all platforms.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to our HCF sponsors, for their funding and commitment. Please be assured that we intend to continue this ground-breaking initiative and look forward to hosting the event in 2021 as the Coronavirus threat subsides.
