Film Career Connections Roundtable

The Film Career Connections Roundtable brings Colorado’s top industry leaders in film, television, and digital media to visit 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, and more.

The roundtable attends 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.

 Due to COVID-19, we postponed this event for 2020. Check back for updates or sign up for the COFTM newsletter.
