Event description

Description

While recent attention has been brought to the lack of diversity in Hollywood films (#OscarsSoWhite) and the lack of women - in terms of subject matter, scripts, casting and directing and pay equity, not much attention has been paid to the film industry workers who actually make the films - camera, lighting and grip, sound, props, etc. Women, especially women of color in the film industry, have had a historically hard time getting onto crews and into the unions, but all this is now changing - and will be changing even more.

Join Shawn Batey (Props and indy filmmaker), Allison Jackson (Sound), and Iris Ng (Electric) on how they got into their fields, their unions and how you can too – and why you should.

This event is sponsored by Third World Newsreel and the Documentary Forum at CCNY with Black Public Media and cosponsored by the CCNY MFA Film Alliance and the Black Documentary Collective.

At City College Shepard Hall, Rm 290. 259 Convent Ave at 140th St.
