We’re pleased to announce that the Q-MeCon/CID panel for Films with a Cause will take place on Pride of the Ocean, Saturday, June 16, 2012 @ 11:15am – 1:15pm in the Deck 3 Conference Room.

The panel will be facilitated by Jennifer Howd, founder of Q-MeCon.

How do non-profits and NGO’s like PFLAG or Amnesty International use films and short web videos to spread their messages, build membership and conduct outreach for their mission? Are you looking for a way to get involved?… Join us for an in-depth conversation with leading change-makers to learn how YOU can make a difference through grassroots efforts to promote content for a cause.

The panelists are Nancy Johnson (PFLAG Oak Park, IL), Susi Walsh (Executive Director of the Center for Independent Documentary), Stu Maddux (director of GEN SILENT, to be screened on board), John Scagliotti (creator of IN THE LIFE, PBS), and Matt Paco (producer at IN THE LIFE and MTV WORKS).

Pride of the Ocean is pleased to be in collaboration with Q-MeCon for the third consecutive year.

The Queer Media and Entertainment Conference (Q-Me Con) creates events designed specifically for industry professionals working in, or looking to break into, LGBT content creation for the burgeoning queer TV, music, film and new digital media arenas. Q-Me Con features engaging seminars, tons of networking events and outrageous off-site parties designed specifically for queer industry professionals and content creators.

Q-Me Con was created by Punkmouse, a NYC-based queer-owned and operated media and entertainment group, founded in 2005 by industry veterans John Baez and Jennifer Howd.

Films with a Cause is one of two seminars Q-MeCon is presenting on board Pride of the Ocean. We will be announcing the other seminar with panelists in a few days.
