DOC NYC Presents: Advancing Equity and Inclusion in the Documentary Field
Advancing Equity and Inclusion in the Documentary Field on July 21st at 2 PM EST.
We’ll be welcoming guests Nicole Tsien, board member of Brown Girls Doc Mafia; Denise Greene of Black Public Media; Day Al-Mohamed, independent filmmaker and founding member of FWD-DOC, Karin Chien, independent producer and President of distributor dGenerate Films; Caty Borum Chattoo of The Center for Media & Impact at American University; and Paulina Suarez, Executive Director of Ambulante, Mexico’s traveling documentary film festival. This will be a deep dive conversation exploring crucial questions about social equity in the documentary industry: from what have been historical barriers of exclusion and marginalization and what is the necessary work ahead of us in dismantling power structures as they exist.
DOC NYC will be donating proceeds of the event to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
We’d love for you to join us, and can also share promotion codes if that might be helpful to make the event more accessible for your students.
