Panels & Free Events
As a first time director, do you feel a duty to address the political context in which you are working? Or do you prefer to focus on telling more personal stories? Do filmmakers working in politically volatile environments get pressured or pigeon holed into making political work, and what ethical dilemmas can this produce? Join a group of festival filmmakers who will consider and debate these issues in relation to their own practice.
