"It is an honor to be recognized - especially by a group of filmmakers devoted to inclusion, honesty and representation through their work at POWER UP."

Keya Khayatian is an agent in the Motion Picture Literary department of leading talent and literary agency UTA. He began his entertainment career in 1995 as an agent trainee in the UTA mailroom. He was quickly promoted to departmental assistant specializing in film rights for literary properties, and in 1997 he was promoted to agent.

With a keen eye for spotting original artistic voices, Khayatian has helped develop the careers of many of the most sought after writers and directors, as well as representing established talent. Born in Iran, Khayatian was raised in Los Angeles and received a B.A. in English Literature from Amherst College.

After earning his degree, he spent two years in New York working at ABC News as a production assistant on World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, before moving to Los Angeles.
