Firelight Media at Big Sky Documentary Film Festival

Firelight Media is proud to be represented at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, the premier venue for non-fiction film in the American West. The 2021 Festival will take place virtually and will run from February 19–28.

Official Selections at the 2021 Festival include films by Firelight Media Documentary Lab alumni Sian-Pierre Regis and Ashley O’Shay, as well as the world premiere of MANZANAR DIVERTED: WHEN WATER BECOMES DUST, produced by Impact Producer Lab alum Jin Yoo-Kim.

Monika Navarro, Firelight Media’s senior director of Artist Programs, will be featured on the panel “Kin Theory: Creating Community with Indigenous and BIPOC Filmmakers Across the Industry” alongside Documentary Lab Fellow Colleen Thurston. Navarro will also serve on the jury for the Mini Doc Competition, an Academy Award-qualifying competition for short non-fiction films under 15 minutes.

The Big Sky Pitch event will feature Documentary Lab alum Jon-Sesrie Goff on the jury, and will include pitches by Documentary Lab alum Hazel Gurland-Pooler and current fellow Patrick G. Lee.
