A 19th welcome to Wynton Wong, our new Multimedia Events Producer

A 19th welcome to Wynton Wong, our new Multimedia Events Producer

Last month, The 19th expanded our community conversations at our third annual 19th Represents summit, hosted online and in Washington, D.C. As we continue this work of bringing our storytelling to virtual and live audiences, we’re delighted to announce Wynton Wong’s arrival as our first-ever Multimedia Events Producer. She’s based in Brooklyn, NY and starts with us next week.

Born in Hong Kong and raised in North Carolina, Wong has worked to explore social issues in her storytelling across the media and entertainment industry, including roles at Universal Cable Productions, Universal TV, the It Gets Better Project, The Outline, Transmitter Media and The Markup. She is also an independent producer and director working on a variety of film, video, interactive and podcast projects.

Wong’s work in the events space began at the legendary music venue, The Cat’s Cradle, in Carrboro, N.C. She has since worked in venues, operations and programming at a variety of festivals such as AFI Fest, Austin Film Festival, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, DOC NYC, Full Frame Film Festival, Hamptons Film Festival, Nantucket Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival. Wong spent three years as the programming manager at Asian Cinevision/Asian American International Film Festival, and continues to advocate for a more diverse, equitable and sustainable film festival space.

In 2022, Wong helped launch the 8ox Set, a New York-based arts and community collective of femme and queer artists and organizers seeking to explore culture, legacy and belonging with a focus on closing circles across borders and generations. 

Please join us in welcoming Wynton to our team!

Non-essential duties (as capacity permits):

  • Participate in culture building, inclusive decision making, and bringing ideas to different parts of our work in order to help us improve as an organization. For example, helping to onboard new team members and participating in our hiring process
  • Participate in team building, organizational and individual relationship building, and professional development throughout the year
  • Other duties as assigned

Relevant skills include:

  • 3+ years experience in multimedia production, virtual broadcasting and/or live streaming, ideally with a media or news organization
  • Experience editing/producing audio and video, including Adobe Creative Suite and/or other multimedia software
  • Experience with running technical audio/video production onsite for events
  • Self-starting, proactive attitude

  • Ability to manage physical demands of event production, including lifting up to 25 pounds, walking up and down stairs, and navigating event spaces of different structures which may at times involve sustained periods of standing or sitting
  • You share our values, and work in accordance with those values
