Please join Upstate Women in Film and Television for our signature event: Conversations & Cocktails, featuring special guest, Yolonda Ross.

Ross is an Actress/Writer/Director/Producer and a two-time Film Independent Spirit Award nominee as well as a Gotham Award winner for her feature film debut as a leading actress in HBO’s Stranger Inside and John Sayles’s Go For Sisters.

In Television, she’s worked on 24, Law and Order, and Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet’s, The Unit, in which Mr. Mamet wrote the part for her himself. The two teamed up again on HBO’s Phil Spector. Ross has recurred as “Claudia” on How To Get Away With Murder, portrayed the memorable “Ms. Green”, in the Baz Luhrmann/ Netflix series, The Get Down, and played a documentary filmmaker in HBO’s Treme which inspired her to step behind the camera for her directorial debut, Breaking Night, which aired on VH1 Classics.

With countless more film, television, and theatrical credits, Yolonda is a phenom willing to share some of the secrets she has used to forge her path to success. I you are interested in filmmaking, writing, acting, directing, or producing, this one's for you!

The Conversation will be led by UPWIFT Vice President and renowned location scout Jillian Fisher. Conversations & Cocktails is part of a series created by UPWIFT as part of its mission to promote and advocate for women in the entertainment industry.
