BVEW Members are the best undiscovered artists and seasoned pros working in film, tv, and performing arts, ranging from creative entrepreneurs to Academy-Award Winners.
Our members live in cities all over the world. Most importantly, they are do-ers. They are interested in hacking show business and advancing innovation and we are so proud to lead them.
We founded BVEW in 2010, but our journey actually started a little over two years earlier. In 2008, BVEW co-founder Dani Faith Leonard founded Industry Power Play, a screening and showcase series (which we merged with BVEW in 2011). Alex came on board a few months later after screening her work and recognizing the value these events held for the NYC community. After hosting nearly 100 screenings and workshops, we wanted to expand our community online and offer more connections, resources, and exclusive opportunities.
BVEW launched on May 1st, 2010. We have produced over 100 events, screened over 300 films, and partnered with companies that we have a great amount of respect for, like Canon and Variety. We have expanded and include members from all over the world, in many artistic disciplines.
