The Career Connections Panels bring industry leaders in film, television, and digital media from all over Colorado to speak to high school and college classrooms across the state. Students connect with professionals to learn about the media landscape, opportunities in the industry, and career paths. Panelists can represent animation, cinematography, directing, journalism, screenwriting, video game design and more.
The Career Connections Panels are hosted virtually for high schools and two- and four-year colleges and universities with animation, broadcasting, communications, digital media, film production or theory, television, theater, and other related programs.
Interested professors should reach out to the Program Manager to coordinate a Career Connections Panel. This program has a rolling deadline, meaning the Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media staff will review requests as we receive them.
Please include the following in your request:
- your title and contact information
- your educational institution
- best days and times to host a panel
- any requests for speakers representing specific professions, such as television journalist, film director, screenwriter – COFTM staff will meets these requests when possible
Schools are selected based on availability of the educational institution, media industry panelists, and Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media staff.
