LOS ANGELES, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ArcLight Cinemas, a premiere movie-going destination is excited to announce the launch of the ArcLight Women in Entertainment Workshop Series. The events will take place from May 17-19, 2016 in Los Angeles, CA. The workshops will be hosted by ArcLight's Executive Vice President, Gretchen McCourt and will feature some of the brightest and most creative leaders across film and television.
"As women, our leadership roles keep expanding and with them, the challenges we face in the entertainment industry. We want to be sure that we are not only shining a light on the most prevalent issues that women face in the industry, but also providing women with the tools to succeed," states Gretchen McCourt. "The launch of the workshop series is a developmental opportunity for emerging creative talent to learn from industry leaders in an intimate setting where they can freely ask questions and learn from these role models and their experiences."
This event series is designed to spark a more transparent and open dialogue that focuses on three areas of film and television: production, marketing and distribution. The event will provide a comfortable setting to gather friends of ArcLight and those women and men that are leaders in entertainment including; Susan Cartsonis (Storefront Pictures), Julie Lynn (Mockingbird Pictures), Gabriela Cowperthwaite ('Blackfish'), Carolyn Harris (Skydance Television), Theresa Won (Myriad Pictures), Jennifer Cochis (Los Angeles Film Festival), Dalia Ganz (Freeform, Disney-ABC Television Group), and Joseph Beyer (Sundance Institute) among others.
