4th Annual Blackstar Film Festival
Panel: Black Women & Indie Film
For a long time, black women directors and producers have
been running the show behind the screen, influencing what we see, think, and
feel. While we take pride in the accomplishments and strides, we celebrate that
no two journeys are the same. This panel will explore these filmmakers’
experiences as storytellers and bridge-builders in the industry, how their
identity has impacted their work, and why they think it’s important to claim
space in film.
Panelists include: director/producer Loira Limbal (Estilo Hip Hop), director/producer Denise Greene (I’ll Make Me A World, Malcolm X: Make it Plain), filmmaker Frances Bodomo (Boneshaker, Afronauts), and curator/producer Elissa Blount-Moorhead (Dreams Are Colder Than Death).
Presented in partnership with Leeway Foundation
