What's Included

Join Cake Batter's Funny Women Festival for an afternoon of panel discussions and hang time with some of the leading female voices in digital media, film, and television. A $10 ticket reserves your seat for 2 industry panels, free cava from The Greyhound Bar & Grill, and light snacks provided by Bon Vivant Market & Cafe and Unbaked. Following the panels will be a mingle with panelist and happy hour prices at the iO West bar from 6:00 pm. Open to festival participants and the public. Panel topics include: PANEL 1: “What is the internet?…Is this thing on?” But really, what is it? How do you post, and when? Can anyone really hear my podcast or should I just talk to my dog? We discuss the ins and out of the world wide web and how to get your stuff seen and not lost into the abyss. We’ve got representatives from Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, Cracked.com, and more! PANEL 2: “You made something! Cool! …Now what?” That final draft is done. Your perfect pilot is shot and edited. You’ve searched high and low and found the best team to play with. What’s the next step? We’ll talk about everything from branding, to marketing, to pitching. All you need to know to continue to create your own content and become a boss lady.
