Gabriel Diamond is a filmmaker, dancer, and transformational experience facilitator. If you were with us in the Fall of 2021, you met him when he was my Featured Guest with his narrative feature film, Less.


As the staff filmmaker at The Skoll Foundation, Gabriel has made hundreds of films about changemakers.  He will be joining us just after the annual Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University. He co-founded Vulnerable Rally, Blindfolded Contact, and Dance Roulette.

 

Steven Ullman ... So, full disclosure, Steven is producing the soon to be re-named doc feature, In the Name of Hope -- which is the film I'm directing. Thanks to ripples from 2022, we met when he was one of my Featured Guests for a screening salon in 2022. He came back for another in 2023, with his film Miss Lillian: More than a President's Mother. More recently more ripples had his longtime friend J. Todd Harris, President of Branded Pictures Entertainment, joined us as an Executive Producer.


An award-winning producer/ director based in Los Angeles his mission is “to provoke thought, evoke feeling, and create community through inspired storytelling and creative entertainment.”
