FILMMAKERS. PRODUCERS. SCREENWRITERS. ANIMATORS. PHOTOGRAPHERS. INFLUENCERS. GRAPHIC DESIGNERS. CREATORS. INNOVATORS. MOGULS.

When you think of a Media Mogul, names like Oprah Winfrey, Rupert Murdoch, and Tyler Perry may come to mind; owners of major networks and studios. But it’s a new era for independent media, and the next Media Mogul may be you!

Brooklyn Media Maker Weekend—produced by Brooklyn Free Speech, BRIC's Emmy-winning TV and Podcast Network—offers panels and workshops to filmmakers, producers, and podcasters looking to sharpen their skillset and knowledge.

Now in its fourth year, the free conference aims to mold a new norm for filmmakers, producers, and multi-purposed content creators. Creators like Issa Rae, Chris Gethard, and Lilly Singh have been a template for a new kind of impresario—using the web and community media as their weapons to innovate from the ground up, and you could be next.

Brooklyn Media Maker Weekend will help you build your own media empire and teach you innovative ways to make your art reach millions, without needing millions of dollars.
