Firelight Media is thrilled to return as a sponsor of BlackStar Film Festival, an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and of global Indigenous communities. Each year, the festival showcases films by Black, Brown, and Indigenous artists from around the world. This year’s festival will take place in Philadelphia and online from August 2–6.
Firelight Media and its sister production company Firelight Films will be well-represented throughout the program. Firelight Media and Firelight Films Co-Founder Stanley Nelson will host a Special Preview Screening of his new film Sound of the Police, with co-director Valerie Scoon. Firelight Media will also co-present a special edition of Beyond Resilience on disability justice. Plus, several Firelight Media-supported filmmakers will screen feature documentaries and documentary short films throughout the festival.
