Exclusive: ‘American Masters’, Firelight Media, Topic launch BIPOC short film series

PBS arts strand ‘American Masters’ has partnered with Harlem-based prodco Firelight Media, founded by Peabody- and Emmy award- winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson, to launch a documentary short film series dubbed In the Making.

Launching Wednesday (Oct. 14), In the Making will feature eight cinematic and character-driven short films from emerging BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) cultural artists that spotlight other BIPOC cultural artists working across a range of disciplines.

The majority of the inaugural cohort have previously graduated from Firelight Media’s Documentary Lab.
