THE STORY:

Veterans in Film & Television (VFT) is 501(c)3 education and professional networking organization founded in 2012, now over 2700 members strong across the country, from all military services and backgrounds.  VFT serves Veterans who work in, or are just entering, the film and television industry by offering resources such as

  • Roundtables featuring experienced entertainment creatives to meet and discuss their craft
  • Mentorships with successful creatives and executives who generously set aside time to meet veterans one-on-one and offer career advice
  • Deeply discounted (or free) education programs like past camera classes with RED Camera or Production Assistant 101 training with Sony
  • Casting notices
  • Job and internship opportunity announcements
  • Exclusive pitch programs with studio executives
  • Career workshops
  • Community outreach

Our most prominent event is our GUEST SPEAKER SERIES in LA and NY where we host prominent executives, directors, producers, writers, actors, and agents in a candid discussion about their career and craft. We have 6 events goaled for 2017 and are fundraising on #GIVINGTUESDAY towards covering the costs of this series which include venue rental and having a professional photographer for documentation.

Past speakers include:
Ron Meyer (President/COO): NBC Universal
Gale-Anne Hurd (Producer): Walking Dead, Terminator, Alien
Stan Lee (Creator): Spider-Man, X-Men, Avengers
Adam Driver (Actor): Star Wars – The Force Awakens
Dara Weintraub (Producer): Superbad, Love
Joe Mantegna (Actor): Criminal Minds

We have had a major push the past few months to revamp VFT and are programming many new events and creating exciting partnerships and alliances with professional entertainment organizations, associations, and guilds, as well as civic, business and nonprofit partners to bring resources, career development, and community to veterans in creative careers.  By donating, you're helping to create new and exciting opportunities for veterans in film and television.
