About this Event

In film communities, “How do I get an agent?” is pretty much a broken record.

The truth is, there are many paths to getting representation! But that doesn’t make the process any less enigmatic. We’ll be chatting with manager, Lauren Dineley (Writ Large); represented creator, Jessica Mendez Siqueiros (Pozole, Adeline); and additional guests about their work — and debunk some of the myths around what agents and managers are looking for in a creator-client. Join us live to have industry professionals — plus a creator who’s been in your shoes — answer your burning questions.

Lauren Dineley is a manager at Writ Large focused on representing writers and directors working in film, television & new media. She is originally from Toronto, where she attended the University of Toronto for her undergrad. She moved stateside to attend the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. Follow Writ Large on Twitter and Instagram.

Jessica Mendez Siqueiros is a Chicana writer/director of mixed indigenous Sonoran and European ancestry seeking to normalize complex & authentic narratives about the Southwest Mexican-American community through film. Her short films have screened at over 75 festivals, including Palm Springs, Seattle, Cleveland, Hamptons, and the Los Angeles Latino Film Festival. Jessica’s latest short film was produced by Walt Disney Studios as part of the inaugural class of their Launchpad Shorts Incubator. She is the recipient of the 2021 Latinx Fellowship from Sundance for her first feature script Reforma. Jessica will also participate in the second class of Powderkeg Fuse helmed by Paul Feig & Lisa Fischer. Follow Jessica on Instagram and watch her films Pozole and Adeline.
