Kin Theory - Creating Community with Indigenous and BIPOC Filmmakers Across the Industry

This DocShop event occurs live on 2/22 at 2pm and will then be available to view throughout the rest of the festival.

The uniqueness of 2020, which included a global pandemic, distinct but overlapping human rights movements, and heart-filling cross-community mutual aid efforts, has deepened conversations about systemic inequities, including in the film industry. The need for capacity building, education and mentorship, resourcing, and distribution of work by Black, Indigenous, Latinx, undocumented, female, trans and nonbinary people, people with disabilities, and otherwise underrepresented artists has never been more prevalent. A session of deep and honest conversation about who's doing the work to support Indigenous and Black filmmakers, as well as other creators of color, what's still needed, and how we can work together to get there.
