The Politics of Film: How Filmmakers are the New Activists
Presented by The Collective and Picture Motion
Join us on Monday, January 26th 11:30am – 12:30pm @ The Collective House: 596 Main Street
Film has the power to shift culture, influence public policy, and transform society at large.
Given the current political climate, growing thirst for civic engagement, and continued advancement of technology, it’s now easier than ever – but also more critical – to leverage the power of story to make social impact and drive legislative change. During this panel, we’ll hear from leading filmmakers, distributors, and issue advocates, and learn how movies are spurring social justice movements and serving as meaningful catalysts for change.
