Witness 20 Creatives Sharing their Struggles and Successes: the WMC Fest 4 Videos

WMC Fest Speakers Bare their Souls

Jeff Finley, founder of WMC Fest, said it best: “Something about the WMC Fest stage, people stand up there and start spilling their guts. It transcends career. They took off their band-aids and showed us all their wounds, and it’s okay because they know they’ll be supported and taken care of. They will be loved.”


Whether you were there in the crowd, or did not have the fortune to be, you’re in luck. We’ve collected all of the WMC Fest 4 speaker videos for you. They’re available below, as well as on our Vimeo channel.
