WORKING FILMS AND RACE FORWARD PRESENT RACE FLICKS

Race Forward partnered with Working Films to present Race Flicks, the film track of  Facing Race: A National Conference, held in Atlanta, GA from November 10-12, 2016.

This year’s Race Flicks program focused on creating impact with film, and featured documentaries that have been, or could be, used strategically by activists, organizers, and nonprofits in work for racial justice.

The Facing Race and Working Films team worked with selected filmmakers to create dynamic programming for each film, and included participation by select filmmakers, curated post screening conversations with activists and organizers, and opportunities for audiences to learn how take films back to their communities and use them to incite change.

Race Forward is pleased to be co-curating the Race Flicks track with Working Films, a national leader in the use of documentary for social change.
