SPOTLIGHT OR SILO? FEATURING UNDERREPRESENTED VOICES AT FILM FESTIVALS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH FILM FESTIVAL ALLIANCE

Location: Panels/Morning Briefings

9/19/2021: 1130A-1230P

In this conversation, in partnership with Film Festival Alliance, we will dissect the curatorial implications and impact of festival programs, both general festivals and festivals programmed around a theme/demographic, that seek to amplify the work of underrepresented filmmakers. What do festival programmers see as the goals of these programs? What benefits (and drawbacks, if any) do such programs have for the filmmakers behind these films? Do these programs spotlight filmmakers, bringing positive attention to their works? Or do these programs silo filmmakers, perpetuating long standing myths about what audiences ‘want to see’? These are just a few questions we will dive into during this session.
