Event description

Description

Hear from the Vice president of Firelight Media, Loira Limbal about how Firelight works with filmmakers - their Documentary Lab, Next Step fund and more, and about the new opportunities at NBPC (National Black Programming Consortium) from Kay Shaw, Director of Programs and Acquisitions.

Firelight produces award-winning films that expose injustice, illuminate the power of community and tell a history seldom told. Firelight connects these films with concrete and innovative ways for diverse audiences to be inspired, educated, and mobilized into action, and are dedicated to developing talented documentary filmmakers that advance underrepresented stories, moving them from the margins to the forefront of mainstream media through high quality, powerful productions.

Founded in 1979, the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) develops, produces and funds media content about the Black experience for public media outlets, including television, digital radio and online. Since 1991, NBPC has invested more than $10 million dollars in iconic documentary content for public media outlets, including PBS and PBS.org; trained, mentored and supported a diverse array of producers who create content about contemporary black experiences.

Cosponsored by Third World Newsreel with the Documentary Forum at The City College of New York and the National Black Programming Consortium. At City College Shepard Hall, Rm 290.
