In Partnership with the Doc Accountability Working Group


With Natalie Bullock Brown, Sonya Childress, Michelle Lanier, Twiggy Pucci Garçon, Poh Si Teng and Dr. Kameelah Rashad


In the face of 2020’s intersectional reckonings, a movement of independent filmmakers and other documentary field stakeholders rose up to reshape the nonfiction industry in profound ways — from dismantling barriers in the field to advancing new, non-extractive, healing-centered approaches to storytelling. Last year, a group of colleagues desiring to activate more concrete change within the documentary field came together to craft a framework for values-based filmmaking. Over 100 stakeholders and film participants have weighed in on that framework. Join the Documentary Accountability Working Group as they share the evolution of their vision alongside a filmmaker, a film participant, a funder and mental health professional, all of whose work embodies the spirit of a liberatory approach to documentary film.
