Working Films is thrilled to be partnering with Race Forward to present Race Flicks, the film track of Facing Race: A National Conference, to be held in Detroit, MI from November 8-10, 2018.

Race Flicks showcases the highest caliber filmmaking related to racial justice and the strategies for using it to make an impact. The selected films will be chosen in large part because of the way they have been or could be used by activists, organizers, nonprofits, and other institutions to advance their work for racial justice. This year’s program will have a special focus on accountable filmmaking that truly represents and holds great potential to build power among those represented in the stories at hand. We strongly encourage people of color, women, queer, undocumented filmmakers, and artists from other underrepresented and/or directly impacted communities to submit their films.

The Facing Race and Working Films team will work with selected filmmakers to create dynamic programming for each film. This will include participation by select filmmakers and subjects, curated post-screening conversations with activists and organizers, and opportunities for audiences to learn how take films back to their communities to incite change.

The complete call for submissions and application is online at


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.
