Beyond Resilience x NOFF: Wellness and Sustainability for Artists at the End of the World

Amid the multiple, intersecting apocalypses of a worldwide pandemic, climate disaster, and racial and economic injustice, how do filmmakers of color sustain their careers and creative practices while also caring for themselves, their loved ones, and their communities?

Firelight Media presents a special edition of its Beyond Resilience series with the New Orleans Film Festival: Wellness and Sustainability for Artists at the End of the World, to bring together nonfiction filmmakers for a discussion about wellness and sustainability during unprecedented and possibly end-times. The discussion will include specific resources, strategies, and practices related to financial stability and self-care that these filmmakers have discovered or created to sustain themselves and their work.

Moderator:

Ani Mercedes, Impact Producer and Founder of Looky Looky Pictures, and alum of Firelight Media's Impact Producer fellowship

Panelists:

Julianna Brannum, documentary filmmaker and William Greaves Fund grantee

Byron Hurt, documentary filmmaker, Documentary Lab alum, and William Greaves Fund grantee

PJ Raval, documentary filmmaker, Documentary Lab alum, and FRONTLINE/Firelight Fellow

Angela Tucker, documentary filmmaker and William Greaves Fund grantee

The Beyond Resilience series is sponsored by Open Society Foundations. Beyond Resilience is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
