Empowered Through Fuck-Ups? Filmmakers Experiences in Exclusionary Work Enviroments

This uplifting Fuck Up Session organized by ProQuote Film introduces a selection of diverse filmmakers. They talk about their biggest failures and set backs during their career and how that contributed to where they are today. As our industry focuses on successful outcomes which increases pressure on filmmakers. That’s why it’s easy to forget that f*cking up is an important part of the learning process. Finally this panel gives our biggest failure stories the stage they deserve.
