Collectively in Conversation

Collectively illuminates how media empowers communities to make their voices heard. In our second edition of this program, three American collectives represent a diverse group of visual storytellers—Appalachian filmmakers, community voices of Chicago, and Pacific Islander media-makers. Each collective provides mentorship and training as well as access to filmmaking equipment. The resulting stories offer unique and vital cultural perspectives celebrated by the Margaret Mead Film Festival. 

Join the filmmakers and leaders of Appalshop, Kartemquin, and Pacific Islanders in Communications for a lively conversation about their work, their challenges, and how they are transforming nonfiction storytelling today.
