Many people who attend the Allied Media Conference are funded by their employers to cover the costs of conference registration, housing, travel, and incidental expenses. At the AMC you will learn new skills, increase the visibility of your organization, and establish partnerships that will continue beyond the conference.
Calling all volunteers for the 20th Annual Allied Media Conference!
The Allied Media Conference includes four days and five nights of workshops, panels, film screenings, Detroit tours, and art and music events, with over 2,500 people in attendance. From welcoming participants at the registration table to installing signage and assisting with questions at the info desk, volunteers make the AMC run smoothly.
According to Paula Guthat, the film theater she co-founded in Detroit in 2013 with partner Tim Guthat came "from a place of deep love for film and the theatrical movie experience."
Five years later, Cinema Detroit is still spreading that love. With a new membership program and regular social justice-focused "talkback" events that fuse film screenings with community dialog, Guthat is intent on using Cinema Detroit to build a media-literate community in the city.
