The Gala Awards dinner will be held on February 15, 2019 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.
“Our mission at MIMPA will be to continue to provide a platform for recognition of those Studios, Producers, Writers, Directors and Artists, who make diversity and inclusion a part of their respective creative projects as a mandate, while also raising funds to support up and coming film-makers and students with grants and scholarships for film and television projects that impact diversity within the entertainment industry”, stated Gibson. “We will partner and dialog with studio executives to assist them with messaging that reflects the landscape of our ever-changing industry, and hopefully create an environment where women and people of color are considered on the same scale as everyone else, making roles more accessible and inclusion a consideration while characters are being created”. “Diversity is not an option, it is a necessary in every creative space”, Gibson said.
