Easter Seals, Veterans in Film & Television Pact

Interactive website launched for vets seeking industry jobs

Easter Seals and the nonprofit networking org, Veterans in Film & Television, are joining forces to bring career opportunities in the film and TV industries to veterans. The partnership underlines both organizations’ dedication to serving returning veterans. Key to the partnership is the launch of the website, VFTla.org, a networking tool for veterans seeking careers in entertainment and a resource for the industry to find veterans.

“Our Easter Seals partnership helped bring to fruition our all new VFTLA.org website — an online directory of our members — which makes it incredibly easy for the entertainment industry to connect with and engage the veteran community working in it,” said VFT co-founder and U.S. Army veteran Kyle Hausmann-Stokes.

Easter Seals is committed to helping more veterans access long term job opportunities and are delighted to partner with VFT to support those looking for careers in entertainment,” said James E. Williams Jr., president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals.
