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 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.
