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
