PANEL DISCUSSIONS

ROUNDTABLE ON DEMOCRACY
*THIS IS A LIVE EVENT  |  SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17 • TIME TBD
GRADES 6-12

Democracy is facing some significant challenges right now. Film has become a vital resource for information and deeper engagement in the democratic process. This roundtable discussion will feature filmmakers and subjects of Festival films that address both the tools and the threats to democracy including voter suppression, protest movements, and the spread of misinformation. In the spirit of civic engagement, the discussion will be streamed live to allow for audience Q&A participation.

Films and filmmaker guests to be announced.

EVOLUTION OF BLACK WOMEN’S ROLES ONSCREEN
AVAILABLE OCT. 12-18
GRADES 7-12

This conversation with film creatives, actors, and historians will chart the changing nature of the portrayal of Black women onscreen. By revisiting the simplistic type-casting of Black women in film since its inception, the speakers will discuss how the representation of Black women in Hollywood and beyond has moved towards a variety of depictions and voices.
Panelists to be announced.

FANTASIES OF RECONCILIATION
AVAILABLE OCT. 12-18
GRADES 9-12

Many Hollywood films, often made by white filmmakers, have presented us with contrived and convenient happy-ending stories of racial inequality in America and beyond. This conversation will revisit and deconstruct those misleading themes and how they ultimately downplay the role of white supremacy.
Panelists to be announced.
