Thursday 7 November
York Theatre Royal Studio
Film has long been able to alter perceptions. It can focus on both groups and individuals on the margins of society and bring them forwards. Whether through narrative or documentary content, film engages with challenging social and political subjects, providing a platform for a range of themes and communities, from LGBT+ rights to homelessness and mental illness. Our panel of filmmakers will discuss the impact and risks of filmmaking around social justice, from finding subjects to identifying outlets for works that engage with principles of equity, participation, access and human rights.
