Guest Speaker – Seattle Shorts Film Festival

The Seattle Shorts Film Festival is pleased to announce SAG actress, Venus DeMilo Thomas will be joining us from Los Angeles for a one-night conversation about working professionally in the entertainment industry.  Venus has crafted a career that spans over 25 years her acting roles include Nickelodeon’s Salute Your Shorts, Family Matters, and Sister, Sister. Other film credits include Life starring Eddie Murphy, and Martin Lawrence. It was while attending Loyola Marymount University, and concurrently working at the family owned Thomas Talent Agency that Venus began to contemplate stepping behind the camera.  The conversation will focus on a wide range of topics including Women in Hollywood, diversity in the entertainment industry, and transitioning from child actor to working behind the camera. Got a burning question about Salute Your Shorts? Q&A session will immediately follow where Thomas will take questions from the audience.
