Welcome to Expand Cinema

A curated speaker series focused on expanding the awareness of industry upstarts to the full range of job opportunities in the production world.

The City

Atlanta has rapidly grown to become one of the premiere capitals of cinematic production in the US. With over 455 TV and film productions in Georgia, the film industry engaged in over 2.7 billion in direct spending alone in the state in FY 2018.

The film industry is here to stay. This evolution brings major opportunities for those prepared to take advantage of them.

State Of The Industry

While we constantly hear about the newest productions coming to Georgia, we hear much less news about the resources available to train people to contribute to these productions.

Undoubtedly, when the magic of movies comes to most people’s minds they think of directors, actors or writers.

But there are a whole world of other roles that are integral for the success of a production, and that is where the Expand Cinema Speaker Series comes in.

Our Goals

The aim of the speaker series is to expand the awareness of industry upstarts to the full range of job opportunities in the production world.

With exciting and informative discussions with various industry standouts, the series will both educate and empower a new generation of production professionals.

The Format

The Expand Speaker Series will take the format of fireside chats.

1 moderator/1 guest allows our attendees to have ample opportunity to connect, listen and learn.

There will be a Q+A session after the main portion of the discussion as well as a networking segment before the close of the talk.
