The Gotham Week Expo brings together partners from our Expanding Communities, Owning It, and Gotham EDU programs to showcase thought leadership on the advancement of the film and media industries while amplifying partner organizations and communities.

The Expo includes both Sessions, a collaborative series of panels featuring topical discussions, and the Showcase, a physical space for our partners to showcase their community, members, and offerings. 

In 2022, the Expo Sessions highlighted conversations pertaining to the topics of Identity and Career Sustainability. The Identity sessions offered education and support geared towards historically excluded filmmakers — filmmakers with disabilities and/or who are Black, African-American, Indigenous, People of Color, gender-diverse, LGBTQIA+, women, and/or from other historically excluded cultures. These sessions were led by organizations such as The Black TV & Film Collective, Film Fatales, ReelAbilities Film Festival, and Undocumented Filmmakers Collective. 

 The Career Sustainability sessions offered education and support for filmmakers to create and sustain careers while balancing other life priorities and discussion around opportunities to grow their careers in the industry. These sessions were led by organizations such as The Black Film Space, Brown Girls Doc Mafia, Film Shop, Islamic Scholarship Fund, and New Orleans Film Society. 

Through the 2022 Expo Showcase, Gotham Members, industry, creators, and the general public who attended Gotham Week were able to connect and confer with representatives from film-focused, non-profit organizations, universities, and other communities that endeavor to support them. More details about the Expo will be available in late spring/early summer.
