Join DOC NYC PRO for a 90-minute panel about the organizations and programs that support filmmakers’ creative careers and professional development, beyond project-based funding–and the importance of such programs, particularly to women filmmakers, filmmakers of color, and other historically underfunded groups within the industry. Guests include Rodrigo Reyes, Co-Creative Director of the MediaMaker Fellowship at the Bay Area Video Coalition; Chi-hui Yang, Senior Program Officer at JustFilms, The Ford Foundation; Debra Zimmerman, Executive Director of Women Make Movies; Monika Navarro, Senior Director of Artist Programs at Firelight Media; and Rahdi Taylor, EVP of Artists in Residence at Concordia Studio. Panelists will discuss the mentorship, fellowship and career development programs they offer under the umbrellas of their own organizations, and discuss the broader role of such programs in advancing the documentary field. The panel discussion will include a 30-minute moderated Q&A.
