Humanity Rising: Storytelling to End Injustice

Sunday, March 13
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 15
531 E 4th St


Chinua Achebe wrote “Untill the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.”

Join us as we talk with filmmakers who are producing from the frontlines to tell their own story in a powerful and important transformation of our understanding of people, places, and moments in time to fight to end oppression and violence and describe the stories of humanity rising in movements for justice all over the world.

We will discuss the unique and critical challenges and opportunities of telling your own stories in this industry and how we as an industry can support film making from the frontlines as a transformative tool for justice.
